Best quotes from the interview:
"I'm not picking on the monarchy."
"I'm not giving her the finger, she's picking her own nose!"
" But does she fart?"
The item was light hearted and evoked laughter in the studio, thankfully!
The piece under the spotlight was a painting originally titled 'The Queen in a Moment of Privacy' created in 2007
