'Joanna Lumley - Elvis And Me' to Air Wednesday

Joanna Lumley: Elvis and Me" Airs at 9 p.m. TBC on Wednesday 4 November on ITV


Joanna Lumley embarks on a very personal journey for an intimate insight into Elvis Presley, the man behind the myth, for this unique one-hour documentary.


The program sees Joanna travel to Graceland and meet some of Elvis’s closest surviving friends and family, including Priscilla Presley, for an honest portrait of what  the king was really like.   


Joanna has loved Elvis since the first day she bought one of his early records. This year Elvis would have turned 80 and it is one of Joanna’s biggest regrets that she never got the opportunity to meet the man.  


“The thing about being a fan of Elvis is that you just love everything about him. I loved the way he looked, the way he sang, the way he dressed, the photographs of him, the way he performed on stage…and I loved his smile and his sense of humor. I love the fact that he never really grinned huge cheesy grins, he had a special Elvis grin, and I borrowed that for Patsy in Absolutely Fabulous…a little tribute to Elvis," Joanna said.


Joanna joins Priscilla Presley at Abbey Road Studios for a recording session of the new Elvis album “If I Can Dream” with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. As they listen to musicians from the live orchestra recording together, the atmosphere is emotional. "This is something he would have dreamed of doing, especially here. It gives me chills really," Priscilla said.


Joanna accepts Priscilla’s invitation to Graceland for a personal tour of Elvis’s home, where Priscilla shares intimate memories.


"The TV room, the living room, Elvis’s jungle-themed den, are virtually untouched. His mother’s bedroom is still as it was. It’s open to the public, but tonight, Priscilla and I will be alone, with her memories," Joanna said.


Joanna also travels to Tupelo, Mississippi, to see where Elvis was born, and to Sun Studio, where his career took off. She also speaks with Elvis' friends and former girlfriends in her search for the king.


Check out an interview with Joanna below.
