Comedian Frankie Howerd teased and titillated his way into the hearts of middle England, becoming one of the nation's best-loved entertainers across an unparalleled six decades. The master of the double entendre chummed up to his audience as the ultimate randy lad - on-stage the innuendoes flew thick and fast; off-stage he cut straight to the chase, pursuing and entrapping unsuspecting young males.

Assistants, photographers, journalists: all were considered fair game. Howerd risked his career and, on occasions, his life in his relentless pursuit of quick gratification.
