Christine Hamilton, Confessions of a Battleaxe, Worthing, Monday 30 March

Battleaxe or Pussycat? Decide for yourself as Christine Hamilton comes to Worthing Theatres, live at The Denton, Worthing, Monday 30 March.

Tickets on sale now.



Join Christine Hamilton for an intimate candlelit supper, where she talks frankly, movingly and in a highly entertaining way about the trials she has faced and how she managed to re-build her life into the successful media personality she is today. Warm-hearted, open and engaging, she speaks from sometimes bitter experience about how she has faced life’s battles head-on and triumphed.

 

Christine appears regularly on TV and radio on both entertainment and news and current affairs programmes. Her repertoire ranges from Have I Got News for You, Bo Selecta and Harry Hill to Any Questions, Loose Women, Newsnight and The Week. 

 

She acquired media celebrity overnight for the forceful support she gave her husband during his 1997 General Election campaign in the Tatton constituency. The ‘Battle of Knutsford Heath’ was one of the high spots of the campaign. 

 

Descriptions of her ranged from the insultingly unflattering to the admiringly adulatory. She was called everything from ‘The Wife from Hell’ to ‘The Battling Lioness’. Lampooned in countless articles and cartoons as a ferocious Battleaxe, she also aroused admiration for her spirit and chutzpah.

 

Christine appeared on the first ever ITV I’m a Celebrity – Get Me Out of Here in 2002 and she enchanted viewers with her natural charm, sense of humour, common sense and kindness, emerging a true Queen of the Jungle. More recently she won another legion of fans with her feisty performance in Celebrity Masterchef 2010 where she reached the final but narrowly missed the title.

 

Tickets for this performance include a three course meal and book signing.

 

“With more women like her Britain would never have lost the Empire.”
