1965-

Scottish comedian and athlete

Cameron was born in Dundee or Musselburgh, Scotland, and adopted when she was very young. Her adoptive father also died, when she was 14, sending her into a long-term depression.

She was inspired by comedians Victoria Wood and Jo Brand as a child. Eventually, after failing in school, a series of menial jobs and a period of alcohol abuse, she took the plunge into stand-up comedy, basing much of her material on her own life. She presented the TV series Gaytime TV in 1998-99 (she has known she was a lesbian since the age of 10), and wrote and acted in the widely panned sitcom Rhona for BBC2 in 2000. She also won a bronze medal in swimming in the 1998 Gay Games.
