The voice of Celebrity Squares

Here’s another one of Stephen Shakeshaft’s fantastic photos, this time of a well known face. This photograph hasn’t made it into his upcoming exhibition ‘Liverpool people by Stephen Shakeshaft‘, which opens at the National Conservation Centre on 18 September, but it made me smile so I thought I’d share it with you. Stephen took this picture early on during Kenny Everett’s career and remembers:

“Celebrity Squares was a popular quiz show hosted by Bob Monkhouse. The voiceover as the prizes for contestants came on was from the irrepressible Kenny Everett – who went on to be a great DJ and television star. I was amazed how many bottles of cola he got through during the show.”
