Oliver White (Editor) - His Unreliable Memoirs - 'A Week on the Island'

Week on the Island ‘Week on the Island’ was a bit feeble, but it’s still a shame it never went out.  I seem to remember a large lady, I can only recall as ‘Big Fee’ having a certain je ne sais quoi……. A natural.  It would have given her a few other parts.
