Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Dame Esther Rantzen Interview…
Broadcasting legend Dame Esther Rantzen and her daughter, journalist Rebecca Wilcox, are on tour throughout 2018 with ‘That’s Life’.
I was honoured to see them in Edinburgh discussing Dame Esthers life, remarkable career and family ties. The show is absolutely compelling. It should be called ‘what a life!’ nor ‘That’s Life’!
There’s no question Ms. Rantzen is a national treasure. Having presented on TV for decades, formed two incredible charities and fought tirelessly for the viewers and public – what is there not to love? She’s a class act.
This interview was featured in the Sunday Mirror 19th August 2018:
Having hosted That’s Life and starred on Strictly Come Dancing and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! among others, Dame Esther is also known for her campaigning and founded Childline and The Silver Line.
She was awarded an OBE for services to broadcasting, a CBE for services to children and a DBE for services to children and older people.
We had to go to meet both Esther and Rebecca her discuss their incredible life and career filmed in HD….
Esther and her daughter will appear at the Leicester Square Theatre November 4th 2018 amongst others.
