Steph McGovern, 39, has taken to Instagram to respond after BBC Radio 4’s topical satire show Dead Ringers “took the mick” out of the Steph’s Packed Lunch presenter and imitated a fictional conversation between herself and theatre icon Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber. Posting a short clip of the show on her feed, the Channel 4 presenter appeared to enjoy the send-up, adding “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”.

And we all know…. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Taking to the social media platform, Steph posted the clip for her 35,600 followers to listen to.

She wrote: “I love it when #DeadRingers on @bbcradio4 do a mick take of me on the show.

“I think @debra_stephenson is fab!

“And we all know…. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. #stephstuff,” she added.

The clip started with comedian Debora Stephenson adopting a high-pitched, northern accent in an attempt to mimic the former BBC presenter.

She said: “Welcome to Steph’s Packed Lunch, with me Steph Governer-McGovern.

“Today I’m joined by Andrew Lloyd Webber,” she stated before not wasting any time questioning the actor who was starring opposite her as the musical guru.

“Right fella, you’ve said that your production of Cinderella will definitely go ahead on the 23rd and you’re willing to go to prison over it.

“[Have] you been smoking spice lad?” she bluntly asked the actor imitating the musical legend.

“Well, yes I am prepared to go to prison,” he replied as canned laughter drowned him out.

He continued: “I am prepared to do time, as I once heard the man doing my corner seat saying.

“Theatre is the life blood of our creative industry,” he started to say before Deborah cut him off.

“I went to a live show once, it was Magic Mike Live for Big Pat’s seventh hen do.

“The only snacks available were the ones Pat had to lick off the stripper’s buttocks,” she said, leading to another rise in canned laughter.

Referencing the star’s thick Northern accent, the actor replied: “I don’t think I understood a word of that deary, but I want to say, here’s a message to this government, theatres must open!

“Yeah, or what?” the Steph impressionist asked

“Or I will create the most disgraceful, obnoxious scene imaginable,” he stated.

“You don’t mean – ?” questioned the comedian.

“Cats Two, OK I won’t go there,” he backtracked to gasps of horror.

Yesterday Steph revealed that she was having a big day in the form of an early personal training session and then welcoming guest Gemma Atkinson on to a Christmas-themed episode of her show.

Stpeh’s Packed Lunch airs weekdays at 12.30pm on Channel 4.
