Reflections was a English TV pop vocal group that appeared on "The Benny Hill Show" on January 26, 1977. Joined by cast members Eddie Buchanan, Jenny Lee-Wright and Diana Darvey, they backed Benny Hill on the opening ballad, "Bianca Malone." For their performance, they sang the song, "Higher and Higher," originally by American performer Jackie Wilson.
There is no known available bio or history for the four-member group, which consists of two men and two women. It is possible they may have been one of the obscure groups from the British talent show, "Opportunity Knocking," which Benny Hill was known for plucking musical talent, namely Two's Company and The Cotton Mills Boys, but this is unconfirmed.
So far, only three members of this enigmatic group have been identified. Linda Robinson, the petite brunette ingenue was identified by writer Robert Ross in the book, "Benny Hill: Master of Mirth." However, he also refers to the group as being "all female." Robinson also played "Purdie" in the New Avengers parody from the episode and as the girl approached by Benny in the "Candid Camera" sketch in the following episode on Feb. 23, 1977, possibly a holdover from the previous episode.
Another possible member of the group maybe Spencer Shires, who also appeared on the show on the March 23, 1977 episode for the Girls Girls Girls Nightclub sketch and as a member of the The Milk Market Board choir. The other female singer has since been named as Dee Eldridge, but the other male singer, since named Donny Hill for identification purposes, still remains unidentified.
According to the IMDB, the group previously appeared in the British TV-shows "The Mike Yarwood Show," "Cooper," "Larry Grayson" and "The David Nixon Show." Some of their appearances have been confused with the "The Reflections" funk group from Detroit, Michigan.
