Poor Alex Kingston. Not only did she reveal her tale of tooth-smashing woe on The Graham Norton Show but she also got into a Trans-Atlantic tangle over Christmas.
Appearing alongside two Americans, actress Reese Witherspoon (This Means War) and comedian Reginald D. Hunter (not counting Graham himself who is no stranger in those parts) Alex wanted to know how Reginald who lives in the UK, could spend his Yuletide in the States rather than here in the festively inclement British Isles – which isn’t even an argument to people who actually spend their Christmas in the UK.
See the results of this cringe inducing debate below.
Still things could have been worse…
Alex also took the time to relive the moment she smashed out her front teeth.
Having walked into a lamppost, an embarrassed Alex hid the obvious head trauma from her comedian co-stars, only to fall flat on her face later that evening, knocking out her front teeth.
Alex can next been seen playing a lesbian in the second series of the BBC’s Upstairs, Downstairs.
The whole episode of The Graham Norton Show is currently available on the BBC iPlayer until Valentine’s Day at 12:19 am.
