Thirty years after the Hi de Hi cast immortalized the British camp culture many people ask: Where are they now? And we, at Otakukart decided to answer that question. Firstly, Hi-de-Hi, the sitcom was created by Jimmy Perry and David Croft, who previously penned Dad’s Army and It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, and was set in 1959 and 1960 in Maplins, a fictitious vacation camp. The title was inspired by the campers’ welcome, which was spelled Hi de Hi in the early episodes. The show focused on the lives of the camp’s performers, the majority of whom were failing actors and has-beens.

Today we focus on the lives and whereabouts of the cast of this immensely popular British comedy show. While some of them kept on going, others left. And their traces were gone. In consequence, our team at Otakukart swept under the rugs of the internet to scoop up any data from these artists. You’d be amazed to know what we found from these guys and girls. Without any further ado, let’s share with you the whereabouts of the amazing cast of Hi de Hi. Let’s begin!

Hi-de-Hi started on the BBC for eight years. It spawned nine series. And it captivated audiences as it gave a glimpse into the fictional lives of camp entertainers who were having a real hard time making it in the fictional entertainment industry. Let’s kick off with Barry Howard, he played Yvonne’s husband and dancing companion. Before working at Hi-deHi he had a job at the Alexandra Theatre. Then he played a couple of small parts in several TV series. After the show had its run. he went to work on House of Windsor with Warren Clarke and Leslie Phillips.
