Pam St Clement hits a bong in a new documentary about marijuana


Share This Article:

Former Eastenders actress Pam St Clement takes a hit on a bong filled with marijuana as a part of a "Puff, Pass and Paint" class in new TV documentary, Gone To Pot.

Sitting at an easel, drawing a still life of a cactus, 75-year-old Pam inhales deeply as she takes a hit from a bong while Christopher Biggins watches on with glee, no this isn’t the plot of an edgy new TV drama, it’s real life.

Recalling the experience, Pam says: “I’d never seen anything like it. It was a glass bowl with a few bits and pieces and then a pipe and a wide opening to it.”

Pam also enjoyed a joint during the painting class and was left in hysterics. 

"I love it when you get the giggles when you shouldn't. It's wonderful, just crying we were, so refreshing to do that, it really is," she said. 

This was all for research purposes, of course, as ITV’s new three-part documentary series Gone To Pot sees a group of celebs take a road-trip around the US exploring the legalisation of marijuana and looking into the drug's acclaimed benefits. 

The group committed to their investigation by getting stoned for the majority of the trip but they also spent time visting a weed farm run by nuns and met with a doctor who uses marijuana to treat his patients. 

Alongside Pam, the celebrity line up includes Loose Woman presenter Linda Robson, 59, pantomime star Christopher Biggins, 68, ex-footballer John Fashanu, 55, and 'King of Darts' Bobby George, 71.

On their first night in America the group went to a ‘hippy party’.

“The five of us looked so out of place it was unbelievable,” Pam said. “These two guys were banging on the bongos and Harry, who had invited us, was there absolutely off his face.”

At the end of the road trip Pam admits she is convinced the drug should be legalised in the UK, especially for medicinal use as a form of pain relief for people with diseases like cancer arthritis, and MS.

You can watch Gone To Pot on ITV next Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9pm.
