Julian Clary (feat. Noel Coward's ghost)
In the very first episode of Round The Houses, Sarah Beeny is off to leafy Kent to nose around the home of actor, presenter, comedian, author, Celebrity Big Brother winner and NATIONAL TRINKET (HIS WORDS!) Julian Clary.
Julian takes Sarah on a tour of his HOME, the Grade II listed Goldenhurst Farm, parts of which date back to the 15th century. He discusses growing up with his ‘double act’ parents and struggling with his sexuality in a strictly religious school, separating his showbiz persona from real life, moving to the countryside after over 20 years in Camden and being a newlywed in his late 50s.
We discover how his interior tastes have come a long way from spray-painting the walls of his housing co-op to the incredible historic home he's spent over 10 years renovating, bit by bit.
