‘I loved it, but Shane has unfortunately got quite the limp as a result,’ she joked.

‘As you know and the country knows, I was very reluctant to commit physically to anything – I am talking intimately – until my honeymoon.’

‘There are so many pluses. No offence to Sam or me, but we waited, we didn’t rush. We didn’t go with the first offer, you know what I mean? We waited and we did it well,’ Effie said.

The comedian is set to perform her new show ‘Hello Good Thanks – Better Out Than In’ at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in March.

The exciting stage show is about life in lockdown with her husband Dr Shane Bradley Cooper.
