Mo Mowlam at No. 10

Lee Simpson, Neil Mullarkey, Richard Vranch, Jim Sweeney and Andy Smart with Mo Mowlam outside No. 10 Downing Street

This photograph was taken on the day that Mo Mowlam (the first President of The Comedy Store Players) had organised a Players' tour of the Houses of Parliament and Number 10, in February 2001.

We had just made the short walk from Parliament Square along Whitehall to Downing Street.

A five minute walk at most.

But it took longer.

It seemed that everyone wanted to shake her hand or give her a hug or a peck on the cheek or take a photograph.

And Mo had time for them all.

She was warm, gentle and always ready to listen and - when she talked to you – she held your hand.

Everyone loved Mo.

She had that rare gift of being able to put everyone around her at ease.

Just look at that policeman…
