"I served her and she then asked for some caster sugar. I rushed to get it and with only seconds to spare, I poured some on the fruit.

"While the news was going out, I watched as she put a spoonful in her mouth and at that moment realised the bag I was holding was a bag of salt. Her face said it all! Only she and I knew about it and it was never mentioned."

O'Carroll, whose comedy creation now has her own chat show called All Round To Mrs Brown's, also offered up details of a close encounter with singer James Blunt.

The You're Beautiful singer was the surprise musical guest on the first episode of the new series and the pair shared a passionate on-screen kiss.

O'Carroll said: "I leaned in mouthing words to the song he was singing and he kissed me. With tongues! My wife asked me if I was embarrassed and I said, 'No. It was very nice. He's a good kisser!'"

Showing Norton how he slips into character, he said: "Mrs Brown has the walk of someone waiting for a hip operation with a touch of Norman Wisdom."
