IT is the interview I thought would never happen. When I heard Pamela Anderson was coming to Liverpool to star in panto, I was confused. What a strange piece of casting.
An American sex goddess to millions and the babe in Baywatch here in Liverpool in panto.
I heard Ms Anderson had done fantastic business in Wimbledon last year as the Genie in Aladdin.
But this is Liverpool. How would Scousers take to her?
I'm delighted to say they love her. They have taken her to their hearts.
The story was out that she doesn't suffer fools. She is guarded by people who love and care for her.You don't get near her, but why should she drop her guard?
The way she has been treated over the years by the world's press, the internet and by some people close to her is totally unacceptable.
I didn't realise how many heterosexual friends I had until she came to Liverpool, I have had them crawling out of the woodwork.
So the big day came when I had to meet her. The first thing that struck me about her was her fashion sense. What a stylish woman. I have never seen her in the same outfit twice.
At rehearsals she was very cautious but when she started to settle into the show her warmth lit up the room.
She is a fun lady. In all my years of working with some of the biggest names in the industry I have never seen an artist so pursued by the paparazzi.
Pamela has really fallen for the city, the friendliness of the people, the Tate gallery and Ma Egerton's at the back of the theatre, where she thinks Ann the singer is brilliant.
The saddest thing for her is she has not had enough time to explore because of the pantomime schedule.
In the panto there is a part of the show in which I get to look at her for three minutes twice a day in Vivienne Westwood's sequined re-imagining of her famous skimpy Baywatch costume. She has legs to die for and I can't fault her looks.
She sends herself up on stage very cleverly and Liverpool people love her for it.
I wanted to find out who is the woman behind this perfectly formed body? I arranged a night out at Viva Brazil the new meat eating experience to break the ice.
Jaf, one of the bosses, was the perfect host, and, with the Dom Perignon flowing, 15 of the company started to bond properly.
To my horror I found out that Pamela is a vegetarian!
I asked Pamela if she would let me interview her on my show and she said yes. So she graced my studio with her presence and I started to find out who she was.
When her children are asked what their parents do for a living, they say 'Daddy's a rockstar, Mummy rescues animals'.
This Christmas her children are surfing with Dad and I was shocked to find out they have never watched Baywatch, which still goes out in 150 countries. One of her children, Dylan, came home from school one day and asked: "Mummy are you Pamela Anderson?"
