La más grande

Continuing our countdown to Spain here at Dolores Delargo Towers, I think we are well overdue a healthy dose of Hispanic diva-ness!

Fulfilling that need with a camp magnificence unequalled by any of her compatriots, here's the utterly splendid, the late and dearly-missed Rocío Jurado.

Every performance she did had more histrionics than any performer this side of Dame Shirley Bassey, and it is unsurprising that she is worshipped by the gays of Spain...

Such is the adulation Spain has for her, where we are staying in Benalmadena even has an Avenida named in honour of Señorita Jurado. We curtsey every time we see the sign. [Camp, us..?]

María del Rocío Trinidad Mohedano Jurado (18th September 1946 – 1st June 2006)
