If you are having trouble thinking of your next Halloween costume then can I suggest Fanny Craddock, a terrifying dragon lady tv cook of yesteryear, who treated her helpers (her tv "husband" Johnnie, her hapless assisant Sarah and random members of the public) with impatience and contempt, often appearing on the verge of a murderous rage that she would be unable to suppress the second the cameras stopped rolling.
Fanny was very posh and a terrible snob with it. She assumed her viewers were sad common women and talked down to them accordingly: "Here's a recipe for those lonely, old people who are living alone" or "This confectioners' custard only contains 3 egg yolks, so it won't break you." And "Prices are so terrible these days, but you have to be allowed ONE piece of decent cake a year." She despised feminism (why would she need such a thing - she already had TOTAL CONTROL) and in one programme complained about men who couldn't carve a turkey "I'm not such an clot as to support women's lib', but this really does drive me mad."
Two plays have been written about her (Fear of Fanny and Fanny Craddock - The Life and Loves of a Kitchen Devil". Oddly, before becoming famous, Fanny was a science fiction writer, perhaps she was an alien from Rocky Horror Show after all?
But it was her bizarre eye-popping face, Baby-Jane kabuki make-up, over-coiffered hair and glam outfits that made her the kitsch legend that she is today. I'm sure that there's a fledging drag queen out there, waiting to take on a Fanny persona, complete with a cookery show where the guests get beaten sensless by an out-of-control Fanny if they get anything wrong or dare to disagree with her.
