There's A Guy Works Down Our Local Swears He's Elvis

A celebration of Elvis Impersonators, their wives and fans.

Ian Mcmillan..

'I'm a small fat man with a quiff; I walk through the mean streets of any town, in the dark spaces away from the glamour, and I see lots of small fat men with quiffs, and big fat men with quiffs.

Elvis lives: look around, he's everywhere." Lou was discovered in a Sreatham restaurant by Mary.

He now does three packed nights a week at her South London pub.

He's been performing Elvis for 18 years and knows he's not The King, he just loves him.

Malcolm has been performing Elvis since 1966.

His wife Maureen does Tina Turner and they are on the road together most nights.

At home in Scunthorpe Malcolm does the splits to prepare for the act.

In pub rooms, on small stages in the less fashionable postcodes, Elvis lives.

Ian Mcmillan meets the Elvis impersonators whose genuine love for The King means they put on wigs and jumpsuits night after night and try to recreate the magic.
