Actress Cleo Rocos joined James Whale and revealed an interesting story about Diana where she was smuggled into a bar.

​Rocos, known for appearing on The Kenny Everett Television Show, told James Whale of her friendship with Diana: "Every time we met we’d meet for lunch with Kenny [Everett] and swap jolly gossip.

“All the palace gossip. All the showbiz gossip. She always wanted to know who was gay and who was sleeping with who, all the stuff that now the magazines tell you.

"With Freddie Mercury and Kenny Everett one day our lunch with Diana segued into - to cut a long story short - we ended up taking Diana to the Royal Vauxhall Tavern in a camouflage jacket."

But she revealed that Everett didn’t want to take her. "He said 'oh darling you can’t come. It’s a hairy gay man's pub, sometimes there are fights outside and I can see the headlines tomorrow: 'future Queen of England dies in gay bar brawl'."

Rocos added that Diana "was the funniest. She was always alight and she loved to laugh, she laughed and laughed and she was extremely witty and extremely funny."
