Marti’s big summer
Singer and comedian Marti Caine was estctatic at being chosen to appear on ITV’S big Saturday-night series The Summer Show. ‘I’m in the middle of a dream,’ she told us. ‘I feel as if I have won the pools.’ Marti had only broken through a few months before on talent show New Faces after many years performing on the club circuit. She went on to make many more television appearances, including having her own series on BBC2, before sadly succumbing to lymphatic cancer in 1995, aged just 50.
