‘My very first Edinburgh Festival, that was in 1987,” says Emma Kennedy. Every single one of us got athlete’s foot.” She laughs. She was the runner-up at the World Conker Championships (I’m not joking and neither is she when she tells me about it which is why I’ve included it). I don’t know if it’s that, I slightly lack that – and now I will destroy you instinct, which you do need if you’re a litigator.“I went up there with Stuart Lee and Richard Herring and some others. And she won Celebrity Master Chef a few years back. You need to be a bit of a rottweiler and I’m not that really.” She smiles.But there wasn’t anyone in her family who had anything to do with the media or any kind of creative job.There was no template to guide her so how could she have known that to be a writer was even an option?She thought she could and the policemen had a suspicion he knew too. I said how did you know and he said because he’s shot three other people.” She guffaws.

Even though that book ends disastrously, going to Oxford is, for Jude, a disaster, it sowed the seeds for me. But I just said I’m going to do it.” The road to Oxford wasn’t smooth, far from it, which is most likely why it plays such a pivotal role in her life. If I fail that’s a different matter but I won’t not try.”Kennedy went to see Mrs Graebe once a week.

Inspiration is just the spark of an idea and that can happen anywhere – on a dog walk, in a chance conversation.

And then it’s about putting the idea together and making it work and that’s just graft.”She says that now when she looks back she thinks it’s so obvious that she should’ve said right from the start, you know what, I’m going to be a writer.

And I know that she exchanges loads of silly tweets with singers Tracey Thorn and Alison Moyet – they’re mates. And she does stuff for Children in Need (Emma Freud is a friend – they met on Twitter, in fact) and breast cancer awareness. She’s written nine books – a mix of children’s titles (the Wilma Tenderfoot series) comedy memoirs (The Tent, The Bucket and Me and I Left My Tent in San Francisco) a guide to the cult TV series, The Killing (Sofie Gråbøl is a pal) and most recently a novel, Shoes for Anthony. “I loved her.” She doesn’t know what she’s doing now but there was some talk of a carpet cleaning franchise. That would be my first job of the day, just seeing what was wrong with Madge.“I wasn’t made to be a lawyer, I’m not furious enough.

You know that old story about comedy writers being miserable? Take a story which involves a premature death and being shot in the neck. I know she recently got married to her partner Georgie Gibbon – she posted a picture, they looked happy and lovely. “I love Twitter.”Kennedy is a polymath and she’s had a long career. She’s an actress (she’s appeared in a slew of telly programmes).
