The Beverley Sisters - Tickled Pink

Profile of singing trio the Beverley Sisters, charting their rise from their humble beginnings in London's East End to the huge stars they became in the 1950s, at the forefront of the television revolution.

Joy, Teddie and Babs are remembered for their sweet image, but behind the scenes they fought several battles about sexy costumes and saucy lyrics, many of which were banned as they were considered too risque for post-war Britain.

Not content with being amongst the highest paid female entertainers in Britain, they were the first British female group to have a top ten hit in America, married dashing sporting heroes, had children and were a constant staple of British television throughout their career.

Featuring interviews with Jimmy Tarbuck, Cannon and Ball, Max Clifford and the trio's daughters.
