Lee was on air live with Ramraj Gogna on his specialist film, entertainment and arts show for Hayes FM last Sunday afternoon... but not in the studio. Instead he was enjoying the sunshine on a grassy bank outside the Octagon Theatre in Yeovil ahead of his concert there the same evening.
How do I know this? Calling at the theatre on an errand ahead of the gig, we parked up to listen to the interview first and couldn't have been more surprised to see a certain unmistakable curly dude stroll casually into view, pacing at first, then sprawling on the grass as he talked, his free hand as energetically engaged in the conversation as his voice when it wasn't idly picking the daisies...!
The talk moved from his tour - the next date is at the Beck Theatre in Hayes on Sunday 20 July - to earlier times... from his birth in Southend, his influences and inspirations, his time on Any Dream Will Do, his various West End roles and on to his more recent venture into the world of television with his regular role on Casualty.
There is no Listen Again feature on Hayes FM, but if you missed the interview, you can DOWNLOAD it here :)
