To Claire Fairgood: There was a commercially-released video compilation of the 1986 series, called "The Crazy World of Benny Hill." You may want to try the "Used" section of UK Amazon to try to get a copy. Both of those bits (I recall their originating from the March 12, 1986 edition) I seem to remember were in that video.

No, It's Fairgood. I don't realy remember much about my short time on the show. We were all in red and there were quite a few of us. One of the songs, I think, was Girls Girls. The other was Captain Benny. I like to know if my show is out on DVD or Video here in the UK?

Hi Claire this is the webmaster for Benny's Place. I am sorry there is no information yet on your appearances on the show. Is this Claire Lutter? I would like to invite you to take part in a short interview for my site. Please let me know if you would enjoy doing so.

Back in 1985 I was working in the distribution department of Thames TV. had met him a few times, but there are 2 meetings that really stick out. One was in makeup and we ended up singing Thank Heavens For Little Girls him as a french guy and me as an indian, the other was over coffee and we were talking about our favorite foods. I left Thames in 1987 and I'm now at CBC Television in Toronto, Canada.

For Lorraine Doyle. Thanks for the reply. I think it's great that you are answering the questions for us. That video sometimes goes for 20 on E Bay but I have heard that The Video Show may come to DVD. Were there any Hill's Angels dance number that were cut from the show. By the way, The Love Machine years is out on DVD in the UK now on the Benny Hill Annuals 76 & 77.

Reply for W.B. Sorry for delay.Jane and myself were the only ones out of Love Machine to join Hot Gossip. Jane joined a while before me.
David was right about 'Walk on the Wild Side' but also we had the 'Supernature' number in the Love Machine' live act.

Reply for David Hawkins. Sorry its taken so long I have been busy. I did not stop dancing in the 89 shows I just did a little less because I was doing a lot more sketches.
Thank you very much for the video info, thats one I will have to track down.
You are quite right about 'Walk on the Wild Side'.
Actually that number was performed by both Love Machine and Hot Gossip in our live acts before being on Kenny's show.

For WB The Source for Benny Hill's parody of the Kenny Everett Video Show was 'Walk on the Wild Side' in 1978. Take a look at the photo's at
You will also find a video clip with Love Machine dancer Jane.

I have my own questions for Lorraine: (1) Which other ex-Love Machinists besides yourself and Jane had been in Hot Gossip, and (2) Were you part of the original "Supernature" dance routine that was the source for Benny's 1979 parody of Everett's show?

For Lorraine Doyle, Why did you stop dancing on The Benny Hill Show after the 1988 shows. Also the Eye To Eye Contact number from Hot Gossip is part of The Best of the Kenny Everett Video Show vol 3 video, Sometimes it comes up on Ebay.

Dear Lorraine, Thank you for your quick answers to my questions. Sorry to hear about your husband.

Was Sue included in the Love Machine get-together? She'd been a "Love Machinist" before their debut on TBHS. In any case, I hope they're all well, happy, and keeping busy, especially Terry. I also hope you'd like to do an email interview with Shawn.

Reply for Erik Larsen. I did own a jewellery shop with my husband Vincent. Sadly he passed away two years ago.So I closed it down.Currently I look after my two lovely daughters.

We had a Love Machine get together last year. Terry Lucas is right.

Lorraine Doyle ( no email / no homepage) wrote:

Reply for DH-- Wow,you could be right, all I remember was doing a number that we called Eye To Eye Contact I think. I have never seen it.Funny thing Benny recorded it for me as I didnt have a VHS recorder at the time. The sad thing is he always promised to let me see it but as time went on we forgot.

Dear Lorraine, Thanks for your replies to our questions! Two for you, if I may:

1) If you don't mind my asking, what are you up to these days? A few years ago, Sue told me that she thought you ran a jewelry shop and taught keep-fit lessons on the side - is that right?

2) Have you heard anything lately about (and what happened to) Terry, from Love Machine - and what was her last name? Sue told me she was "Terry Roberts" but she was called "Terry Lucas" in one sketch.

I was so glad to happen upon your wonderful sight. What started as some quick internet surfing turned into being up most of the night reading throught all the great info and memories. As a 31 year old, here in The United States, I too grew up on Benny Hill (albeit on the edited for American audiences versions). I do remember feeling a real sadness when I read that he had died, as well as a slight anger that his passing got very little attention here. Sad to see that Mr. McGee has also just left us. I agree with someone else's post, that the "Old Guard" is leaving us. Benny's legacy, if nothing else will be evidence that not long ago, men could be men. Keep up the good work. Your site has been added to my favorites.

I'm a 35 year old Brit who grew up with Benny Hill - He was as big a part of my youth as DR WHO and SEASAME STREET (Jenny Lee-Wright was my first crush!!) and his shows were something to genuinely look forward to.

When he was sacked (for the heinous crime of finding women attractive!!!) we all lost something special - The world seems to have gone slowly downhill since Benny (and many of his collegues) where hounded from our screens. Yes it is an over-simplification, but I just don't see the joy for life in comedy today - Thanks for keeping this wonderful man's legacy alive for us.

We've just lost Henry McGee too (Who I met once; What a nice bloke!)- The "old guard" is slowly fading and it's vital we remember them all.

To all of you: This is from an old yank who has just recently discovered the wonderful talents of everyone on the Benny Hill Show and I want to say, Thanks for the laughs and the smiles you all brought to us. I have all 4 DVD sets plus a few extras and my sides hurt from all the laughter, and my eyes are red from the tears thinking about those who are no longer with us.
This is a super web site and I hope more of the former TBHS talent write in and let everyone know what and how they are these days.
Thanks again

A question for Jane: have you heard anything about Teresa (Terry) from Love Machine - and what is her full name? Sue identified her to me as Terry Roberts, but it's thought she might have been Terry Lucas. Thanks in advance!

In a recent UK Channel 4 TV show Supposedly chronicalling TV's sexiest glamour queens (or some-such) we were reminded of several recent and present - day females; all of course post femenist and cloned - agressive. I never thought they would get around to the glorious days of the 70s and early 80s ... But they did eventually.
We were treated to Legs & Co., Pan's People, Hot Gossip, and then, right at the end, they started to talk about Hill's Angels being the sexiest of them all .... going on to say that as such, they couldn't show them as there would be "Rioting in the Streets."
I was horrified, but not surprised. Britain is a land void of fun at the moment - political correctness is at the gallop.
Never let this site disappear - an entire British generation has nowhere else to turn for a fix of Benny and Hill's Angelica.

This site is an oasis in a funless desert .. Well done. May it go from strength to strength.
In looking here, and researching elsewhere, I am increasingly worried that I may never see the unsensored version of the wild wild west routine (lady godiva). Does it exist on any available release? The stills are so tantalising in the gallery here... The only versions I can find have the whole poncho taking off bit missing. Any suggestions would be very much apreciated.
Sorry Virginia; I have been searching on line for Benny's poems and lyrics to no avail. I guess it is up to someone to transcribe them eventually.

Having just met someone who truly believes that you can do anything if you only try hard enough, I would love to have the words to my favourite Benny Hill poem--"they said it could not be done". Is there anyone out there who could help me please
Or is there somewhere I can find it on the net.
Like "Fufan" --these poems are classics and should be published somewhere, only I don't know where to find them. Thank you

Benny Hill was the grreatest showman on the telly and I enjoyed watching him on PBS Ch9 out of St Louis,Mo as a Kid growing up in Missouri. People called him sexist but as Sue Upton states if a skit was uncomfortable for her or the girls it was dropped post haste. And I wish Sue& her kiddies and Louise and all the other Girls of Hill's Angels a Very Merry Christmas and God bless.

Very nice site and a wonderful tribute to one of the true funnymen of comedy and laughter. He will be missed. Kudos to you for sharing your memories of the show and the wonderful cast who kept me up past 11:30 PM on school nights laughing myself silly watching Benny's antics on syndicated TV here in San Francisco. Although not a comedian, I hope to achieve a career as a talk show host someday---Benny inspired me as he has many others.... Best, Kenneth
