Quick read of the newspaper.
 Cynthia Payne was an English brothel keeper and party hostess who made headlines in the 1970s and 1980s, when she was convicted of running a brothel at 32 Ambleside Avenue, in Streatham, a southwestern suburb of London.There are two comedy films that are loosely based on her life, both released in 1987: Wish You Were Here, about her adolescence, with Emily Lloyd in the lead role, and Personal Services, about her adult life, starring Julie Walters as Cynthia. Both were written by David Leland, who directed Wish You Were Here. 
She would have been 88 years old. 🎈
