One of Scotland’s most recognised and longest-performing neo-burlesque stars, Daiquiri is famed for her tartan-clad performance on Britain’s Got Talent 2009, which established her as the original tartan tease.

In 2010, she made modern-day burlesque history, when she was invited to headline at ‘The First Burlesque Show in Town’ in Brasov and Bucharest, the first time that international burlesque had been taken to Romania.

She regularly appears at Glasgow cabaret clubs Riding Room and Wild Cabaret and is a regular cast member of the touring show, The Sugar Revue, taking cabaret to Scotland’s rural venues.
