Freddie Mercury (1946-1991) was a British rock singer, best known as the flamboyant frontman of the group Queen. He died from AIDS in 1991.
Portrayal on Spitting Image
Mercury was featured a lot on Spitting Image, but always as an extra and never under the name "Freddie Mercury". As a small joke he can be seen in the audience during the Queen parody: "We're the Royal Family", which features Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family spoofing "We're the Champions" by Queen.
