The 55-year-old TV star shared a snap of Ely Cathedral on Sunday (September 27) on her official Twitter account, calling the historic building “marvellous”.

Russell, of Lambeth in London, said the cathedral “has frightening corners”, showing her 41,000 followers one of the faces on the exterior.

The BBC medical drama star wasn’t the only celebrity in Ely this month as singer Pixie Lott also stopped by the cathedral to catch Evensong earlier last week.

The All About Tonight singer arrived just in time to catch the girls’ choir perform before meeting the group afterwards - posing for photos.
