Lip service

    Actress Maureen Lipman is very pleased with the profit she made on the Edwardian Muswell Hill home she shared with her late husband, the award-winning writer Jack Rosenthal…

    "We bought our house 30 years ago for about £129,000 and I sold it for more than £1 million," she says.

    The Hull tailor's daughter now lives in a "funky bachelor-girl flat" in Paddington Basin. "I love it, love it, love it," she says. " Westbourne Grove has the best shopping in London by far."
