The BBC  Christmas TV show that is going to be recorded at the end of this month will be hosted by Bassey’s great friend and one of her biggest fans, comedian David Walliams.

In 2006 David Walliams and Matt Lucas did a parodie on Tom Jones and Shirley Bassey in a program called Rock Profile. It is a British television comedy show written by and starring comedy partnership Matt Lucas and David Walliams.

David Walliams plays the part of Tom Jones and Matt Lucas plays the part of Shirley Bassey. The interviewer is Jamie Theakston.

The show comprises a series of spoof interviews, involving Jamie Theakston questioning Lucas and Walliams who play famous musicians. The interviews are often bizarre and involve broad, unflattering caricatures or just downright fictional characteristics. They are often interspersed with videos by the featured artist, including humorous captions and congratulations from other impersonated celebrities.

The episode with Shirley Bassey is all about her famous line ‘ She doesn’t have the range’   from a 1997 TV-documentary where Dame Shirley and her dinner guests speak about the Bond movie Golden Eye.

  1. This was HILARIOUS Pieter. I enjoyed seeing Tom Jones perform, and I loved when Mr. Lucas kept imitating DSB, even to when Mr. Theakston say’s Shirley Bassey’s name he says “She doesn’t have the range, and men throwing their pants…They don’t have the range…Too HILARIOUS!!!
