Byline: GEMMA DUNN

Tell us about your new E4 show, Tripped IT'S a sci-fi comedy drama and it's about two friends who get sucked into a parallel world and are trying to find their way home, all the while being chased by a baddie played by Richard Gadd.

It's a bit crazy, but it's fun to do something new and different - plus it's exciting to be able to go into work and play six different characters in one show.

IT'S great; it's a completely different style of acting, which is a nice challenge. I'd like to do more within this genre as comedy improvisation is something I would like to get better at; and plus, my family is pleased I'm doing something that they won't constantly have to cry over.

It's been over six months since you won a Bafta for best actress. Does it still seem surreal? YEAH, it still feels quite strange, but because I've been talking about it a lot - in fact, I won't shut up about it - it's becoming something I'm getting used to. …
