Memories of the actress Diana Dors are being sought by a researcher for a project on the famous former town resident.

Ian Payne is putting together a professional scrap-book on the blonde bombshell, dubbed 'the English Marilyn Monroe', based on pictures and articles from film magazines.

The 48-year-old is appealing for anyone who knew or met Dors to get in touch and share any anecdotes about her.

Between 1954-57 Dors is thought to have lived at High Trees in River Gardens, Bray, as well as in Ray Mead Road.

The screen star also opened a cafe called Le Toucan in Maidenhead High Street - and Ian is keen to hear from her customers.

The scrapbook is a non-commercial 'labour of love' for the Walsall resident, who will donate it to Swindon Archives, in Dors' hometown, when it is complete.

Do you have memories of Diana Dors to share? Contact Ian at or on 01922 627522 or leave a comment below.
