She started stand-up in the early Nineties, winning the So You Think You're Funny? new act award in 1992. The following year she made her Edinburgh Fringe debut, and in 1995 supported Jack Dee on tour. She has been touring on and off in her own right ever since.

In 2002 she joined the West End cast of The Vagina Monologues, before heading off to the Australian jungle for the first series of I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, which led to a job hosting the ITV game show Russian Roulette the same year.

The following year, she played the first ever female narrator in The Rocky Horror show on tour and then in the West End.

In 2003 she wrote her first book Nineteen Seventy-Nine: A Big Year in a Small Town, an autobiographical account of a year in her life in childhood as a lesbian in a Mussleburgh. Her debut novel The Naked Drinking Club was published by Ebury Press in 2007.

Rhona swaps wives...

...with Stan Boardman

Rhona Cameron and Stan Boardman have signed up for Celebrity Wife Swap.

The lesbian comic will trade partners with her old-school counterpart for an edition of tge Channel 4 reality show to air early next year.

One source said: ‘Stan's very old school. We're expecting fireworks from the off.’

While Boardman’s friend Pete Price added: ‘He’s definitely a male chauvinist pig, out of control and zany, always late and unpredictable.

‘From what I’ve heard, he’s been to every local cafe as she can’t cook. And apparently, the chemistry hasn't been the best between them – and that’s putting it politely.’

Neither comedian is a stranger to reality TV: Cameron took part in the first series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here in 2002, while Boardman was one of the housemates in Channel 4’s Kings Of Comedy in 2004.
