Veteran singer DAME Shirley Bassey is delighted she has proved her manager wrong - he told her she will never have a successful career.
The Goldfinger hitmaker has an incredible music career, but reveals her manager thought she would never appeal to a big audience.
She explains, "My manager always said to me, 'You'll only ever be a cabaret singer, you'll never appeal to a family audience.' Boy did I ever prove him wrong.
"I started to go into musicals, then variety, then concerts, then pop songs, so I covered all those bases. Variety teaches you so much, because you get so many different artists in one show."
