In tribute to the legendary Doris Day, Michael Ball reminisces on her life and career – and takes you back to his unforgettable interview with the iconic star, recorded in 2011.

The original whip-crack-away girl talks candidly about her movies, her music and her leading men – in an exclusive one-on-one chat that had a lasting impact on Michael, and remains one of his favourite interviews to this day.

Michael says ... "There has only ever been a very few truly iconic movie stars whose talent and image have ensured a kind of immortality. Doris Day is one of the greatest of them all. So to have had an opportunity to talk to her about her life and career when she granted me a very rare interview was beyond thrilling. They don’t make them like Doris anymore, and they never will."
