Bond Girls Invade Abbey Road

Former BOND girls JOANNA LUMLEY and HONOR BLACKMAN channelled the spirit of THE BEATLES for a charity CD - by recording it at the Fab Four's favourite Abbey Road studios.
The pair was among a horde of cult British actors, including Martin Shaw, Brian Cox and Geoffrey Palmer, who performed poetry readings for the project.
Their efforts will be released as Words For You, a CD in aid of a children's charity - and Lumley insists the stars were honoured to record their parts at the legendary London studio The Beatles made their home.
She says, "It's very moving. The great excitement was this is in Abbey Road. It's the studio where The Beatles recorded. I walked down the stairs saying, 'Where am I? This is paradise.'"
