Feel Good boasts a great cast, but who plays George’s mum?

At the moment, entertainment is more important than ever. 

Luckily, there’s plenty of it. Admittedly, it’s nice to reminisce and return to old favourites from time to time, but there are still lots of exciting new efforts to keep up to date with.  

With the rise of such popular streaming services like Netflix, we’re all spoilt for choice… it’s really never been harder to decide what TV series to watch! However, Channel 4 has rarely steered us wrong in the past, having given us the likes of Peep Show, Friday Night Dinner and far beyond. 

Recently, we’ve been invited to tuck into Feel Good, a comedy-drama series created by Mae Martin and Joe Hampson.

Mae stars in the central role of a recovering addict and comedian navigating the highs and lows of life. Told across six parts, there are a number of familiar faces who drop by along the way…

Feel Good: Who plays George’s mum?

The character of George’s mum, Felicity, is played by Pippa Haywood. 

Across her career, the 58-year-old English actress has earned impressive accolades, including the 2005 Rose d’Or Award for Best Female Comedy Performance for Green Wing

There is a wealth of exciting screen work to highlight, but beforehand it’s worth drawing attention to her life on the stage. That’s right, she’s in theatre too!

She has showcased her talents in such productions as House & Garden, Private Lives, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Winter’s Tale, Landscape with Weapon and Requiem. Although, she’ll be most familiar to general audiences for her TV work…

Pippa Haywood attends the Rainbow Trust Carol Concert at St Paul’s Church on December 5, 2019 in London, England.
