Oliver Lansley (“Whites”) is set to play classic British comedian Kenny Everett in BBC Four’s new telemovie biopic “The Best Possible Taste” reports The BBC.
A radio DJ and television entertainer, the offbeat and wild Everett is probably best remembered for his own series “The Kenny Everett Television Show” which ran throughout much of the 80’s.
Some of Everett’s most famous characters including Sid Snot and Cupid Stunt will be featured. Everett died in 1995 from an AIDS-related illness at the age of 50.
Former “Coronation Street” actress Katherine Kelly will star as Lee ‘Lady Lee’ Middleton, Everett’s wife of thirteen years.
