“I saw the Robert Stigwood film and there was an artist Yvonne El­li­man who played Mary and she was from Hawaii.

“I’d been strug­gling as a coloured singer to get a gig in mu­si­cal theatre be­cause I’m not quite black enough and not quite white enough. When I saw El­li­man I de­cided I wanted to be her one day and then stand­ing on that stage years later made an im­pres­sion on Michael which was great.”

Kate Ce­ber­ano will chan­nel Shirley Bassey.
