Summary
When Pat Stewart posed on the railings of Blackpool promenade on a blustery day, little did she know the resulting photograph would become an iconic image of the 20th century. For years, an imposter named Norma Edmonton claimed to be the famous girl with the enchanting smile. But after seeing Mrs Edmonson lying on 'The One Show', Pat Stewart stepped forward to reveal herself and tell her story. Pat was born to dance. At the time of the photo, the 17-year-old was a prestigious dancing 'Tiller Girl,' and went on to high-kick her way from Blackpool Pier to the best (and worst) clubs in the West End. Over more than half a century in the showbiz industry, she became friends with some of the era's great stars. This, finally, is the true story of the girl in the spotty dress
