Ricky and Tony are back on the case of another superstar-based pop myth. One of their stool pigeons has tipped them to a demand by the Goddess of Pop, Cher, for a special room wherever she goes for the sole use of her wigs. 

Rumour has it that when on tour the room is furnished with just a table and three chairs, along with other demands of white and milk chocolate fountains, a slush machine and mountains, Walkers Thai sweet chilli crisps and no air-con!

For this one the sleuths need to get to the heart of Hollywood and close to Cher’s inner circle. They track down Cher’s former dancer and famous choreographer (and one of the original kids from Fame) Bubba Carr who lets Ricky & Tony in on the secrets of what happens on tour and what Cher’s really like to work for. And someone who knows Cher’s wigs better than most, world famous wig maker to the stars Renate Leuschner shares her stories of working on those famous dos. She’s also made wigs for most of Hollywood including Robin Williams (The Mrs Doubtfire wig), Bette Middler, Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Halle Berry and many more.

With so many strands to this story, there’s a lot of evidence for Ricky & Tony to comb through.
