Chirruping, ditzy dolly, the self-parodying Betty Boop of swinging London. At one time she used to crop up all over TV, but is now only rarely seen. After becoming a national catchphrase in the pre-Python 'At Last The 1948 Show' ('Introducing the LOVELY Aimi MacDonald…') she swerved briefly between variety and acting, often appearing as herself in light entertainment shows and panel games, but occasionally playing a role in comedy or drama.
|Aimi MacDonald in full-on variety show mode|
She was in some classic series, like 'The Avengers' and 'The Saint', but was more often on our screens dancing or being silly on 'Celebrity Squares', 'Sez Lez', 'Give Us A Clue', '3-2-1' or 'The Kenny Everett Television Programme'.
|With Roger Moore in the feature length 'Vendetta for The Saint'|
|Star of camp comedy, Ray Martine. Album cover.|
And here she is, being lovely.
