You may remember Stephanie Beacham as Sable Colby in The Colby's, but we prefer to think of her as Connie in the 1980's rag trade drama of the same name. She has most recently appeared as Ken Barlow's girlfriend in Coronation St.
So far, so camp, but now our favourite drama queen is appearing in the 7th series of Celebrity Big Brother. I could pretend it's the teens that make me watch it, or that I just happen to keep walking into the room when it's on, but call me trashy, I love reality TV and I especially love CBB.
I thought nothing could top Jackie Stallone, but I am totally loving 'Dame' Stephanie's airs and graces. At 62, she is dignified, articulate and ever so slightly, barking mad. She knocks spots off the stupid WAG's and wannabes and has so far entertained us with her exercise/teeth cleaning routine while wearing sunglasses, and her disgust at the quality of the sheets in the BB house.
Connie to win!!
