Who was Anita Whitehouse?
Anita Whitehouse (née Jones), was a singer with the Welsh National Opera. She moved to Enfield, Middlesex, when her son, Paul Whitehouse was four years old, which led to his discovering his talent for mimicry.
“At school I didn’t say a word for the first four weeks – I called it my Silent Month. I think it was because everyone was speaking so differently from how it had been in Wales. Then, after four weeks, I came home one day and said, ‘Muumm, I wanna go to Sarfend!’ For her that was the end because I had lost my lovely Welsh lilt. So I became very conscious of speech and the effects it can have. But when I went back to Wales I would start talking all Welsh, ‘like that, you see’ before going all Alf Garnett while coming back the other way.”
