WHEN PAT STEWART POSED ON THE RAILINGS OF BLACKPOOL PROMENADE ON A BLUSTERY DAY, LITTLE DID SHE KNOW THE RESULTING PHOTOGRAPH WOULD BECOME AN ICONIC IMAGE OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. IT WAS ALSO ONE THAT WOULD FOLLOW HER THROUGHOUT HER FIFTY-SIX YEARS IN SHOW BUSINESS. Pat was born to dance. From pulling on a pair of ballet shoes at three, she became a prestigious Tiller Girl at seventeen, and high-kicked her way from Blackpool Pier to the best (and worst) clubs in the West End. After her mother picked peas in a field to put her only daughter on the stage, Pat went on to perform with and befriend some of the greatest stars of our time, including Laurel and Hardy, The Beverley Sisters, Morecambe and Wise and many others. Finally retiring from performing herself, she went on to become a showbiz agent, in the process meeting the notorious Kray twins. This is the memoir of a lady who has led an extraordinary life. From being stranded in Africa and dancing for her supper, to suffering from stage fright live on the Benny Hill TV show – Pat has seen it all. Her remarkable story gives a unique insight into what happened behind the scenes when the final curtain fell.
