Tittle Tattle by Martyn Hesford

It is 1964 and the 'Carry On' films are at the height of their popularity. Kenneth Williams is taking his mother Louie out for afternoon tea to celebrate her 60th birthday. He makes sure it is in a 'select' tea room - Derry and Toms. But who does he bump into? None other than fellow 'Carry On' actor Charles Hawtrey and his mother Alice. Charles is meeting a director about an upcoming film, but he is being very secretive as to who this mystery person is.
