Dame Shirley at Somerset House Skate Launch

On Tuesday November 17th, Dame Shirley Bassey attended the opening of the Skate at Somerset House with Fortnum and Mason.

Underneath the twinkliest Christmas tree in town, decorated with a generous sprinkling of mini Fortnum’s hampers, guests whizzed around to DJ Gemma Cairney, while snow queens tottered around the sides on gigantic stilts.

Dame Shirley Bassey confessed even she’s not perfect when Daily Mail bumped into her at this event:

“It’s not my business to have an opinion on Sam Smith’s Bond song because Goldfinger wasn’t perfect. Not many people know this, but there are two wrong notes in there. The more I listen back, the more I can hear them. I’ve been unhappy about the song for 50 years!”
