  • Lulu Kennedy-Cairns, best known as Lulu, is a Scottish singer, actress, television personality and businesswoman. She is noted for her powerful singing voice.

    She is internationally known, but especially by UK audiences in the 1960s. Later in her career she had hits internationally with "To Sir with Love" from the 1967 film of the same name and with the title song to the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun. In European countries, she is also widely known for her Eurovision Song Contest 1969 winning entry "Boom Bang-a-Bang", and in the UK for her 1964 hit "Shout", which was performed at the closing ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

    Lulu was born in Lennoxtown, Stirlingshire, and grew up in Dennistoun, Glasgow, where she attended Thomson Street Primary School and Onslow Drive School. She lived in Gallowgate for a while before moving to Garfield Street, Dennistoun. At the age of 12 or 13, she and her manager approached a band called the Bellrocks seeking stage experience as a singer. She appeared with them every Saturday night: Alex Thomson, the group's bass player, has reported that even then her voice was remarkable. 

    In 1964, under the wing of Marion Massey, she was signed to Decca Records. When she was only fifteen, her version of the Isley Brothers' "Shout", credited to 'Lulu & the Luvvers' and delivered in a raucous but mature voice, peaked at no. 7 on the UK charts. Massey guided her career for more than 25 years, for most of which time they were partners in business, and Massey's husband Mark produced some of Lulu's recordings.

    After the success of "Shout", Lulu's next charting single was "Leave A Little Love" in 1965, which returned her to the UK Top Ten. Her next record, "Try to Understand", made the Top 40.

    Later that year she guested on the cover version of the Dan Hartman song "Relight My Fire", with boy band Take That. The single reached no. 1 on the UK Singles Chart and Lulu appeared as Take That's supporting act on their 1994 tour. At this time she also appeared as an unhappy public relations client of Edina Monsoon in two episodes of the BBC television programme Absolutely Fabulous and teamed with French and Saunders many times, including their send up of the Spice Girls (the Sugar Lumps) for Comic Relief in 1997, when she took the role of "Baby Spice", mimicking Emma Bunton.

  • Today we’ve got a special bonus episode of Tea With Twiggy. Dame Twiggy speaks to an NHS Nurse, Lucy.

    We so rarely get to speak with people who work in our health service.

    As well as clapping each week and donating to NHS Charities, we wanted to say thank you and share Lucy’s story with you first hand.

    Lucy is an NHS nurse who works in Intensive care so is usually busy taking care of those most in need. She was able to squeeze Twiggy me in for a cup of tea and a chat about her life so far and her experience on the frontlines fighting coronavirus.

  • Welcome to Tea with Twiggy! In this episode Twiggy has tea with Myleene Klass!

    Twiggy and Myleene talk about "Myleene's Music Klass", which she set up on YouTube. If you're interested in her free online music lessons you can find them by clicking this link or searching for "Myleene's Music Klass"

    A musician, singer, model and television presenter, Myleene Klass is an unstoppable all-round entertainer. Making a name

    for herself as a vocalist and classical pianist, Myleene has since developed a career packed with on-screen appearances, features in major fashion magazines, partnerships with retail giants like M&S and Littlewoods, a primetime saturday show for

    Smooth Radio and so much more.

    Myleene was born in Norfolk in 1978 to an English-Austrain father and a Filipina mother. She began playing the piano and her grandfather's violin at age of four. She studied voice at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she also added Harp to her repertoire. After completing her studies Myleene then won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music where she later graduated.

    Myleene then worked as a session musician/singer. She says: "I was incredibly fortunate. I got the chance to work with some of the most remarkable artists on a daily basis and learn from them. The diversity of the music I encountered each day is every musician's dream."

    Myleene toured with the likes of K.D.Lang, Robbie Williams, Cliff Richard and Michael Crawford to name but a few. HerWest End debut followed rapidly afterwards as she joined the cast of “Miss Saigon”. "I enjoyed being part of an ensemble. Miss Saigon is such an epic show and I had so much fun. It’s such an emotional and rewarding show to be a part of"

    Myleene first shot to fame in the 2001 ITV1 series Popstars the original reality TV music show whose premise was to create a UK pop band. From thousands of singing hopefuls, Myleene was chosen to become one of five members of thecontroversial yet incredibly successful pop band, Hear'Say.

    Hear’Say’s first single “Pure and Simple” entered the charts at No.1, going on to sell over 1 million copies. This was followedby their No.1 album “Popstars”, and another No.1 single “The Way To Your Love”. However, despite a string of hit singles, a nationwide sell out tour,, and gigs with legends like Stevie Wonder and Celine Dion, the band split in late 2002 leaving Myleene to pursue a solo career.

    Myleene hosts her show every weekend on Classic FM and every Saturday afternoon on Smooth Radio. Myleene has been a very popular TV host on Popstar to Operstar and The Classical Brits. She has also taken a jump into the world of retail and developed her own collections.

  • Welcome to Tea with Twiggy! In this episode Twiggy has virtual tea with Joanna Lumley!

    Born in Kashmir, India, (her father was a major in the Gurkha Rifles), Joanna’s family returned to the UK after Indian independence. Joanna came to England as a young girl to complete her schooling at St Mary’s School in Sussex.

    An aspiring actress, she first came to fame as a model in London's swinging 1960s, where she was photographed by the greats, including the late Patrick Lichfield. She was designer Jean Muir's muse and became one of the top ten most-booked models of the 1960s.

    Her first TV appearance was in a bread advert, followed closely by her ‘big break’ on Coronation Street – she turned down Ken Barlow’s marriage proposal! It was The Avengers that brought Joanna (and her ‘Purdey bob’ hairdo) to the forefront of popular culture.

    But Joanna’s reinvention as a comic actress in her role as champagne-loving, chain-smoking Patsy in Absolutely Fabulous, from 1992-2005, cemented her role as one of the UK's best loved and most respected actresses. The show was formed into a hit film in 2016, featuring countless celebrity cameos.

    In 2008 Joanna became the public face of a campaign to provide Gurkha veterans with the right to settle in Britain. She is also a vegetarian and an active crusader for animal rights. Joanna has been a supporter of Survival International and the cause of indigenous rights, a patron of Tree Aid and a patron of the Pastoral and Environmental Network in the Horn of Africa.

    Other charities supported include Mind, ActionAid and SANE.

    She has won three BAFTA awards and a British Comedy Award.
