Des O'Connor Biography
Des (Bernard) O'Connor is a British singer and entertainer, born January 13th, 1932 in London. He toured with Buddy Holly and Lonnie Donegan in the 1950s. He has appeared on numerous television programmes from the 1950s right through to the 2000s, and was the butt of many affectionate gibes by Morecambe and Wise concerning his singing talent - or lack of it - which he always took in good part.

In March 2004 Des and his fiancée, Jodie Brooke Wilson (35), announced that they are expecting their first child this summer.
