Des O'Connor on Dreamboats & Petticoats

He was joking on This Morning that he might be nominated as "Most Promising Newcomer" when he makes his debut West End appearance in a musical next Monday 3rd October in Dreamboats & Petticoats at the Playhouse Theatre.

Veteran performer Des O'Connor is in amazing shape and is doing all 8 shows a week until 7th January next year. The writers of the musical are Maurice Gran & Laurence Marks (Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather, The New Statesmen and Shine On Harvey Moon) and the part Des is playing has been slightly changed to bring in more humour between him and his son (played by Scott Bruton).

Always up for a challenge, Des said he has already tried out the Everly Brothers and Cliff Richard songs he will be singing at one of his concerts and they were very well received.  Remembered as being the singer that Morecambe & Wise always crticised, Des can really sing having recorded thirty-six albums with four top-ten singles, including a number one hit with I Pretend.
