The popular British comedian Miranda Hart did something many of us can only dream of doing; she got to cuddle up with a copy of Pride and Prejudice, by a roaring fire, alongside Mr Darcy himself – Colin Firth!
The video below in which Miranda gets very cosy with Mr Firth, appeared in a Red Nose Day charity segment, which saw her take on a different challenge every day for the last month.
The idea was spawned from her book Miranda’s Daily Dose of Such Fun!, which offers 365 ideas of small activities that can help brighten up each day, while also helping to spread joy to others.
