Dusty's fellow Britpop icon and vocal admirer Petula Clark is returning to the West End this October in a stage mounting of Mary Poppins. When I first saw the headline I assumed Petula would be playing the lead - and frankly I could totally see that! (And wish I could.) However Bonnie Langford's niece Zizi Strallen - who toured the British Isles as Mary Poppins four years ago - will be the show's star, while Petula will end her 22 year absence from the West End to cameo as the Bird Woman - and besides the character now singing her theme song Feed the Birds the show's producers have reportedly expanded the role in recognition of Petula's musical abilities. The article in the Daily Mail can be read here: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/a ... ge-86.html

Such a trooper. She obviously really enjoys singing and should be Dame Petula in my opinion.

Ev'rything's coming up Dusty.

I think the fact she's lived in France most of her adult life is the problem. Got to pay those taxes you know.
