This was Cliff’s last “Oh Boy!” appearance for 5 weeks – not returning until the important live broadcast of 7th March, which was the first of the shows recorded for broadcast on ABC in the United States.

This was the first of two appearances by Shirley Bassey. She returned in a fortnight  (14th Feburary 1959) singing solo and performing a comedy duet with Marty Wilde.
