Toyah on TV: Paxman On The Queen’s Children

February 3rd, 2019

channel519aThis article, Royal bombshell: Why Prince Charles once asked ‘Shall I go gay?’, at today’s Sunday Express suggests Toyah will be appearing in a new Channel 5 documentary series which begins airing this Tuesday.

Prince Edward may also cringe at the sight of another re-run of his much-maligned It’s A Royal Knockout TV show. The one-off charity extravaganza saw members of the Royal Family compete alongside celebrities from the worlds of sport, music and TV in a series of wacky challenges and events. Toyah Willcox, who took part, reveals that the press took against the show because Edward forced them to stay inside a tent to report on the antics outside.
