As much as she disliked doing interviews for TV Dame Shirley always felt relaxed and very at ease with Des O’Connor. As a result of that there are a few very nice performances of Dame Shirley on the Des O’Connor Show from over the years. On this show from 1990 she features two songs: The Greatest Love Of All & Hey Jude.
Des O’Connor Tonight (1977–2002) was a celebrity chat show on British TV. that also featured music and comedy.
