Well, my mother thought I was a beautiful baby!  These are come of the earliest pictures in my scrapbook.  As far back as I can remember there was no doubt that my life would be in show business and I hoped to be a star.

My mother was equally keen for me to succeed.  I gave my first public perfomance at the old East Ham Palace music hall when only two and a half.  Mother coated my face with strawberry jam, gave me a jam pot, and I went on and sang Dear Little Jammy Face.

We moved to Westcliff and then Ilford but I kept up my singing and dancing lessons.
