Des O’Connor & Shirl’

In 2001 Dame Shirley was a guest on An Audience with Des O’Connor and here are the parts of that show that featured Dame Shirley. Des O’Connor is the only one who’s allowed to call her ‘Shirl’. They go back a long time and Dame Shirley was on Des O’Connor shows in 1986, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996 & 1999.

  2. Thank you Pieter. Welcome back! I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this archive. Hilarious about the lovely date she and Des O’Connor had. I think he was merely a little smitten with DSB, and was being the gentleman that he seems to be, and trying not to come on too strong on their first date and treat her with respect. Who knows what may have developed between them if she had given him another chance to date her. I guess after having married Kenneth Hume she was on her guard, and being more discerning about men that she dated. I love Des O’Connor, seems to be a nice fellow, and I am glad that they have been such great friends throughout all these years. They had some great interactions with one another when she was a guest on his program. DSB looks absolutely lovely at the concert, and in the pictures with Des above. I thought that she and Beau would have made a lovely couple. GREAT comment my friend DENNIS. Her music and style of entertaining has been very inspiring and unforgettable. Thanks again Pieter!!!
