His entry in ‘The Rough Guide to Choregraphy’ reads thus: “This oversized mock-Russian ballerina fabricates lovingly tart send-ups of classical technique, diva-style celebrity and all the attendant pretensions".On Trafalgar Day 2005, he was asked by Admiral Sir Alan West, First Sea Lord to sing on the HMS Victory in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen. This brought him to the attention of Combined Service Entertainment who took him out to Iraq and Afghanistan to entertain troops as Madame Galina.
