Tv and stage personality Roger de Courcey and Nookie have had to cancel a week-long cabaret season at Bailey’s nightspot, Watford, next month because of a Las Vegas date.

Roger, who lives in Bushey, has been invited back to America by singing star Dean Martin. They shared the bill at the MGM Grand Hotel last October as part of Roger’s prize for winning television’s New Faces talent show. Dean was so impressed that he asked Roger and Nookie to return. They will appear in Las Vegas for two weeks.

The management of Bailey’s have agreed to release Roger from his booking, but he hopes to play at the Watford nightspot later this year.
