Right! Get yer thinking caps on. I am doing a quiz for charity and I am stuck on the last question. The clues are cryptic and the answer is a British or American comedienne.

The clue is: She was so proud of her "little bit of vermin".

Any ideas?

To let you know how they are thinking, an example of one that we have answered is:

Q. Maureen Lipman impersonated her, by George.

A. Joyce Grenfell

Just a slighly educated guess, but malapropisms like this were the forte of Hylda Baker. The line does not appear in The Rivals by Sheridan so is not a direct Mrs Malaprop quote.
