1978 The year of Dame Shirley’s 25th. anniversary. Below a newspaper article from March that year when she visited a performance by Danny La Rue.
She has been great friends with him for a very long time till his death in 2009. Danny was also involved in the 1993 (second) This Is Your Life that Dame Shirley did and in 1970 she joked that she came back from her exile in Switzerland because HE was trying to take HER place!
