Nicky Haslam TV show: Now who was it who made him cry?


Nicky Haslam and Paris Hilton give each other a facial

Don't miss Hi Society - The Wonderful World of Nicky Haslam (Nov 17, BBC4, 9pm). It's billed as a "documentary about the socialite, bon viveur and wit Nicky Haslam, one of the world's most respected interior designers, whose clients include royalty, rock stars and Russians." And other r-ses. Word reaches me that the film is "made" by making Nicky cry on-screen. It was David Jenkins's questioning which did that - but director/producer Hannah Rothschild was dubbed over the top. Not for her greater glory, natch!

Meantime, here's Nicky promoting his memoir Redeeming Features, now being reprinted. Click once to play.

not as camp as I expected, just fruity

I adore Nicky Haslam, though I'm quite glad his style has, um, evolved from the superannuated ton-up boy look he favoured a few years ago: I look forward to watching the programme tonight. But crying? Hmm, how very common.
