Trains, Shoes and Debbie McGee

Hear my interview with the lovely Debbie McGee on BBC Radio Berkshire talking about Circus Burlesque. Early Sunday morning I had gotten all dressed up to meet her at the BBC Studio and put on a pair of fabulous shoes I had found in my wardrobe that I had completely forgotten that I owned. Result!… Or so I thought. I guess they were pissed off that they had been abandoned in my cupboard unloved for a year and decided to have the last laugh because over the course of the day they slowly decided to disintegrate on me, so by the time I was chatting to Debbie I had one already bound with my hair ribbon to keep it together. It being Sunday it wasn’t until I had got all the way back to London that I could find an open shoe shop to purchase a new pair. If you can picture a fully glammed-up burlesque performer edging down Oxford Street with the souls of both shoes completely ripped apart the save for the very tips of my toes. The humiliation! I think a passing tramp actually stopped to give me a sympathetic glance and throw a 5p my way. Thank God for Dorothy Perkins in the end. Needless to say I had to have 5 cocktails at Cellar Door and an impromptu sing along with Pete Saunders to recover.
