Best quotes from the interview:

“I’m not giving her the finger, she’s picking her own nose!”

” But does she fart?”

The item was light hearted and evoked laughter in the studio, thankfully!

The piece under the spotlight was a painting originally titled ‘The Queen in a Moment of Privacy’ created in 2007
