A whole generation think odd-shaped vegetables and dogs who say "Sausages" when they think of Esther Rantzen, while another thinks of the children's charity ChildLine.
Both versions of Esther - the serious and less-so-serious - who went into TV and now is also a tireless charity worker and campaigner, will be revealed in her debut tour, which marks her 50 years in broadcasting.
The That's Life presenter, who has an OBE for services to broadcasting, CBE for services to children, and a DBE for services to children and older people, presented the BBC1 show from 1973 to 1994, and founded ChildLine in 2013, as well as most recently The Silver Line, to combat loneliness and isolation in older people, in 2013.
She also appeared on I'm a Celebrity...get Me Out of Here! in 2008 and was on the BBC's Strictly in 2004.
Her debut tour, Esther Rantzen: That's Life - My Family and other vegetables, runs for 13 dates and comes to Folkestone Quarterhouse on Wednesday, March 28.
She will be in conversation with her daughter, the presenter and journalist Rebecca Wilcox.
They will be discussing their careers, personal lives and family ties, making the show a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the country’s national treasures.
There are some tickets still available for the show at Folkestone Quarterhouse on Wednesday, March 28 at 8pm cost £22.50. To book call 01303 760750 or visit quarterhouse.co.uk
