SOUTH Tyneside comedian Sarah Millican will become the latest castaway on a popular radio show.

The comic, originally from Chichester, South Shields, will be the guest on Kirsty Young’s Desert Island Discs tomorrow.

The show, which airs at 11.15am on BBC Radio 4, will see Sarah pick her favourite songs of all time.

She’s well-known for her no-holds-barred style of comedy and has earned sell-out tours and her own successful TV series.

Sarah said: “People come along and think, ‘oh she’s being too rude’. They don’t realise I’m just like this at home.

“People think I’m prim and proper at home but I’m not – I’m just me transplanted onto the stage.”

The show will run for 45 minutes.
