Casting announced for expenses film

Filming began on Saturday for the BBC4 Drama ‘Bringing Down the House’ about my battle with the House of Commons for MPs’ expense receipts. Today the cast list was published.

Two-time BAFTA winner Anna Maxwell Martin is holding her own against a slew of older men playing the parts of the old boys network in Parliament. I’m sure she’ll give ’em hell.

There’s a rumour that I might be an extra in the film. We’ll have to just wait and see on that.

Stay tuned.

    Include the sub-title:
    ‘How a Parliament of Fraudsters was dragged kicking and screaming into the glare of the 21st century!’
    Well done, Heather!

    So, if you’re not good enough for the role of glamorous and tenacious freedom campaigner, which part in the production do you fancy, Heather?

    You could be a moat cleaner, a duck house seller, a light bulb installer, a bell tower repairer, so many choices!

    But try to get a part with a musical number so you can sing and dance, eh?

    No chance of Gillian Anderson then?

    I heard that was who you hoped would play you!
