'Mrs Thatcher' actress Janet Brown was so good she fooled Joan Rivers

Janet Brown, whose impersonations of Margaret Thatcher were so good that she fooled comedienne Joan Rivers into believing she was the prime minister, has died, aged 87, in Hove, Sussex.

She met Rivers in the VIP lounge at Kennedy Airport, New York, after arriving to appear on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Rivers apologised to the "Prime Minister" for berating the Royal family. When told about the deception, Rivers said: "If you're not Margaret Thatcher, for God's sake who are you?"
