Bobby Crush made it big in 1972 when he won six appearances on the ITV talent show, Opportunity Knocks. He won the Variety Club’s award for ‘Best New Artist’ and starred at the London Palladium alongside Jack Jones, Vic Damone and Julie Andrews. Since then he’s toured all over the world, won two gold discs and brought Liberace back from the dead. A couple of years ago he celebrated his 60th birthday with a gala concert in London’s West End.
We talk about the highs and lows of show-business, why he stayed in the closet so long, drinking champagne with Julie Andrews, and why he’s a self confessed applause junkie.
