“Iestyn’s early experience came touring countrywide from age four with his father, Country and Western singer Terry Edwards and with his mother, Eirwen, who was banned from doing any more of her psychic platforms after she channelled evidence of a cold case murder.

“He trained as a Hammerstein Chanter at Southwark Cathedral, then later at Guildhall and first played Madame Galina during the inaugural Rag Week Revue. After a private singing recital for Her Majesty in 2005, wires got crossed and he ended up on four tours to Iraq and Afghanistan entertaining for Combined Services Entertainment. Woman’s Hour made him Forces’ Sweetheart and Joanna Lumley played his recording of Tom Bowling during her 2006 appearance on Desert Island Discs.

"The book about his war-zone experiences: My Tutu Went AWOL! is published by Unbound Books and topped the Amazon Gay and Lesbian Biography Chart above Graham Norton and Sue Perkins.
