Victoria Wood online poll - the results
Thanks to a successful crowd funding appeal and the support of Bury Council, there will be a lifelike, life-size solid bronze statue of Victoria Wood in her home town of Bury.
An online poll was held for the public to decide which character they wanted her statue to be based on - either 'Bren' from her TV sitcom Dinnerladies or 'Kimberley's Friend'.
The results of the online poll were:
- 60% for 'Bren' from Dinnerladies
- 40% for 'Kimberley's friend'
Chris Foote Wood, Victoria's brother, says:
"My grateful thanks to everyone who has taken part in this poll and to Bury Council for running it. I always wanted Victoria's fans to decide which character they wanted for her statue. Every £2 you paid to vote will help pay for it."
