This week Sue Lawley's castaway is the entertainer Jimmy Tarbuck. Originally from Liverpool, he began his career as a redcoat at Butlins holiday camp. He went on to become a compere at the London Palladium and fronted numerous comedy and game shows including 'Winner Takes All'.
In recent years he's returned to the stand up circuit and is a popular after-dinner speaker. He's also turned his passion for golf into a new venture with a series of videos on the world's best and worst courses.
