Maxine's three sons are horrified when she starts stand-up. She is forced to lie. They think she's in Lidl.
Maxine left London for Dublin in 1990, married an Irishman, became the first divorcee, reared three rowdy sons and discovered how English she was.
Maxine featured on Woman's Hour and tours the UK and Ireland,
