‘You were there during the long days in lockdown. You distracted them when we needed to work with one of them at our feet. You made us laugh when we were stretched as a family.’ 

Carrie went on to say that the animated series was like ‘putting a mirror up to our family’. 

She gave the example of an episode that dealt with a grandmother struggling to use FaceTime, which Carrie’s children asked their own nan to watch.

On Friday, Carrie celebrated 40th birthday by throwing a small shindig with her friends and family by her side.

She revealed in September that she had to cancel her grand plans to celebrate her 40th at Glastonbury Festival due to Covid-19 

Carrie wore a pink dress as she posed next to a balloon with a rather cheeky slogan, and joked that she gets to stay 39 for another year because 2020 doesn’t count.
