Jane Horrocks has revealed she's pleased her new series Trollied isn't "cliched northern humour".
The Absolutely Fabulous actress plays an aspiring supermarket manager in the Warrington-set Sky1HD comedy, which begins on August 4.
Describing the series, she said: "It's not chip butty writing, which I'm very relieved about."
Putting on a broad northern accent she defined the type of writing she didn't like by saying: "In't it grand up north? And we're all called Tiffany and Kylie."
She added: "It's a bit more sophisticated than that, Trollied, in its writing style."
