On this day in 1932 Des O'Connor was born in Stepney. A comedian, singer and presenter, he was active for over six decades. O'Connor had a close friendship with comedians Morecambe & Wise, who would frequently make fun of his singing on their show (“Des O’Connor’s a self-made man. Well, it’s nice of him to take the blame.").
