Comedian and actress Lindzi Germain on how she's laughed her way through the lockdown

If you live anywhere near Merseyside you'll know the name Lindzi Germain, the hilarious actress and comedian has been entertaining crowds across the country for decades and is a Mersey Icon.

During lockdown, she's been entertaining hundreds of thousands of people on social media with her online lockdown series across various groups on Facebook.

She tells us how laughing has been key to staying positive during the lockdown and also talks about how she's been staying body positive during this unique time.

Note - Michael and Lindzi are friends and some of the topics discussed include Lindzi using her body image for her comedy in a positive way.
