Last Saturday was "The Missy Malone & Friends Burlesque Revue"s annual double whammy show at The Playhouse in Cheltenham! This is a very special show for me as it is my adopted hometown show and I had allot of friends and family in the audience! The Playhouse is the perfect size and style for the show and I just love it! Both shows were a sell out, keeping with out "sold out" Cheltenham tradition!

The stellar lineup included Anna Fur Laxis, Luna Rosa, Cherry Shakewell, The Bees Knees and our host Desmond O'Connor!

Here is a few sneaky snaps from the night. The official photos and footage from the show will be coming soon!

Sound check!

WINDMILL GIRLS! - (Filming for the BBC)

Today I had the great pleasure of featuring in a new BBC2 Drama "Best of Men" as one of the iconic "Windmill Girls". It was a real privilege to be recreating a very important moment in history.

"Best Of Men is the remarkable and uplifting true story of the birth of the Paralympic Games and its visionary creator Dr Ludwig Guttmann". To find out more about "Best Of Men" see HERE! and to read abit more about the real "Windmill Girls" see HERE!

I assume the drama will be airing around the time of the Olympics/Paralympics this year (August) but I will keep you posted!

So here is the real life "Windmill Girls" circa 1940's

And here we are!! The costumes were so cute and we were all given matching "Betty Grable" hair do's! Our routine was a super high kicking Can Can and we spent most of the time trying to keep our hamstrings warm!! My wonderful fellow showgirls were Charlotte, Rowan, Hannah, Lisa and Amber.

On Friday I headed to Nottingham to perform at "Black Cherry Burlesque" at The Black Cherry Lounge inside Nottingham Rock City! It was a blast from the past for me as many moons ago I hopped on a tour bus in Glasgow with a young Californian punk band and woke up at Nottingham Rock city! The after party ended up in this room (then called The Rig I believe). It was defiantly not as nicely decorated back then!!

I was performing alongside Cherry Deville, Ivy Wilde and Flixx Demontrant and here is a few snaps of us messing around backstage!

Last Monday I jetted off to the Motherland to spend a couple of days with my parents and best gal Ruth. It was just what I needed as I had been dealing with a stressful booking and needed to take my mind off things and be with the people closest to me.

Here are some portraits I took of beautiful rainy Scotland.

Just before I headed home I went for an eye test in Broxburn my Mama's old home town and she took this opportunity to show me her old primary school and childhood home. I really love hearing about my family's past and hearing all the stories. It helps me paint a picture of those family members I never knew.

I then headed back to Cheltenham for a busy weekend of shows and running around like a crazy thing! another blog to follow!
