The Walker Art Gallery and the Museum of Liverpool hosted a selection of fabulous frocks from the wardrobe of Lily Savage, the acid-tongued alter ego of comedian and television presenter Paul O’Grady.

The main display of seven dresses was at the Walker Art Gallery, with four more in the entrance of the Museum of Liverpool. The outfits on show had all been worn by Lily in her many different guises, including host of television game show Blankety Blank, star of pantomime and all round fashion icon.

Lily’s Birkenhead-born creator, Paul O’Grady, ‘retired’ the famous ‘blonde bombsite’ to a French convent in 2004, but she returned for this display, bigger and brassier than ever!
