You could say: What would you expect from someone nearing 30 about a star nearing 60? But cheeky taunts can pay off for a person early in their career, or in Baines’s case, careers.
Her role in A Royal Night Out is not central and the film is not going to win any Oscars. Still, a role in a multimillion-pound feature is usually worth taking.
Baines, who lives in Islington, told Loving Dalston: “Presenting on Hoxton Radio with Helen Sorren is a fun job but acting in films involves better outfits.
“In A Royal Night Out I play Cockney girl Mary and I am all 1940d up. As a Londoner, it was amazing to film my scenes in Trafalgar Square and outside Buckingham Palace, although I had to smoke a lot of herbal cigarettes.”
