Norfolk: Teacher Says BAFTA Winning Student Is A Great Talent

A Norfolk teacher who's former student Olivia Colman won two BAFTAs last night has told Heart she showed great talent from an early age.

Paul Hands is the Director of Drama at Gresham's in Holt where Olivia went to sixth form.

He taught her for Theatre Studies 20 years ago and last night he was thanked in Olivia's speech as she accepted two awards for Best Supporting Actress and Best Comedy Performance.

And Mr Hands told Heart reporter Hannah Griffiths about Olivia's time at Gresham's.
