The Dame Edna Treatment – The Dame Returns
Dame Edna Everage, housewife and self-confessed ‘gigastar’
makes a triumphant return to the UK’s small screens this spring
in a brand new series for ITV1.
The busy international icon has kindly made room in her hectic
schedule to bestow a little of The Dame Edna Treatment upon
ITV viewers. The legendary Dame will host the series from
her exclusive health spa where she’ll entertain fellow megastars
as they rest and recuperate from the strains of everyday celebrity
Dame Edna says ‘I’m giving exclusive access to my inner sanctum.
While most gigastars, megastars and wannabe popular people
are locking themselves away behind big gates and spooky old
security guards, I am opening my doors and my arms to you,
you lucky little possums.’
Australia’s First Lady and favourite export has spent the
last few years entertaining royalty and international world
leaders; jetting between her lavishly appointed homes in Los
Angeles, London, Sydney, Switzerland and Martha’s Vineyard;
performing sell out shows around the world; and carrying out
charity work in her positions of Friend and Governor of Friends
of the Prostate and creator of The World Prostate Olympics.
Dame Edna’s inimitable interviewing style has made her a
household name across the globe and viewers will be treated
to a unique glimpse into her luxurious life. Renowned for
her stylish and exceptional dress sense, Dame Edna has a colossal
new wardrobe for the series and will bring a touch of antipodean
glamour to Saturday evenings.
The Dame Edna Treatment is a Tiger Aspect Production for
ITV1. It is executive produced by Clive Tulloh and series
produced by Victoria Ashbourne
