OSCAR winner Helen Mirren dropped in to RHS Hyde Hall to talk to staff and explore the gardens.

The actress, who grew up in Leigh, visited the Royal Horticultural Society's gardens on the outskirts of Chelmsford for a day out.

The Hollywood star is a keen gardener and a regular visitor to the Chelsea Flower Show, but came back to her roots to visit Essex.

She stopped for a lunch in the restaurant and chatted to gardening staff about keeping the site blooming all year round.

...although it has to be said that people have said very much the same things on these pages.

Funny how people here get all bent out of shape when someone slags off their town yet there are others on here who think fit to slag off individuals they have never even met, either comment posters on here or people who are the subjects of stories.

Ye who is without sin and all that....
