Julian Peter McDonald Clary (born 25 May 1959) is an English comedian and novelist, known for his deliberately stereotypical camp style, and winning Celebrity Big Brother 10. He has also acted in films, television, and stage productions. Clary was born in Surbiton, Surrey, to Brenda (McDonald), a probation officer, and Peter J. Clary, a policeman. He was brought up in Teddington with two older sisters. By his own words, he was conceived 'in broad daylight' in Clacton-on-Sea in 1958. Two of his great-grandparents were Germans who immigrated to England at the end of the 19th century. He was raised Catholic and educated at St Benedict's School, Ealing. He later studied English and Drama at Goldsmiths' College, University of London.
