Hattie Jacques: This is Your Life

Hattie Jacques appeared on This is Your Life in 1963. At the time her career was going from strength to strength. She had a new television series in the offing, was starring alongside Eric Sykes and her latest Carry On role, Peggy Hawkins in Cabby, would prove to be her favourite part in the series.

However, despite the outwardly happy, content Hattie we see in the programme, sadly her private life was in turmoil. Her marriage to the actor John Le Mesurier was falling apart which must have made their appearance together on the programme a rather tense, strained affair. 

Not one to dwell on actors' private lives, I wanted to share this classic television episode really so we could see one of our most beloved actresses at the height of her fame. Hattie didn't give many interviews so it is lovely to see her as herself for a change.
