The Unforgettable

The Unforgettable Danny La Rue

About this programme

Long before Lily Savage, La Cage aux Folles or Priscilla, Queen of the Desert there was Danny La Rue, Britain's foremost female impersonator who turned cross-dressing into mainstream family entertainment. He started his career performing in Soho and went on to become one of the highest-paid entertainers in Britain, but lost both the love of his life and his entire fortune at the peak of his success. This tribute includes interviews with friends including Ronnie Corbett, Barry Cryer, Roy Hudd, Lionel Blair and Lynda Baron.
