Defecting from Thames Television to the BBC and debuting on Christmas Eve 1981, Everett enjoyed his greatest television success.

Thames argued that they owned the copyright to the characters from The Kenny Everett Video Show, not Kenny, so he introduced new characters such as Cupid Stunt (pictured above) – although some characters were very similar to his previous ones – note the similarities between Sid Snot and Gizzard Puke.

Kenny’s musical guests throughout the five series’ included The Police, Toyah, Madness, Lulu, Modern Romance, Duran Duran, The Stranglers, Culture Club, Tears For Fears, Elton John, Kim Wilde, Donny Osmond, Marillion and Spandau Ballet.
