Paul O’Grady Pop Art
For anyone who ever cried with laughter at one of Lily Savage’s risqué stand-up routines in a nightclub in the 80s, it would have been impossible to imagine that the outrageous drag queen would go on to rule mainstream television in the 1990s and beyond.
From breakfast TV to game shows, Paul O’Grady’s character Lily was welcomed into light entertainment without ever forgetting her roots (her Birkenhead background that is, Lily frequently forgot to touch up the dark roots on her peroxide beehive) or taming her demeanour.
Lily hung up her wig when Paul retired the character to appear as himself in “The Paul O’Grady Show” on Channel 4 and then ITV, and in recent years has been an ambassador for Battersea which appears in the adorable series “Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs”.
Before Lily’s success on TV, Paul appeared in “Chimera” with Kenneth Cranham, “In the Name of the Father”, “The Bill”, and in “The New Statesman” as Marlene Dietrich.
