Lily Savage began her career as a pub and club entertainer. She moved from South London Royal Vauxhall Tavern to the London Palladium, sharing the bill with Victoria Wood in 1993 and in her own show in 1994. Her many TV Awards include Most Popular Entertainment Programme, National Television Awards, Best Entertainment Programme at the British Comedy Awards, and the Variety Club BBC TV Personality of the Year 1997. Lily played Miss Hannigan in ‘Annie’ at the Victoria Palace in 98-99 and for a UK tour.

Paul O’Grady moved into the world of entertainment via his alter ego Lily Savage. In 2002 he was the Child Catcher in ‘Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang’ at the London Palladium. His new BBC TV 7 part series of ‘Eyes Down’ was transmitted in the autumn and culminating in a Christmas Special. The Paul O’Grady Show has just finished its highly successful daily 8 weeks on ITV.
