Luciano Pavarotti (1935-2007) was a world famous opera singer.
In "Spitting Image" he was depicted as a morbidly obese man who spoke with a mock Italian accent. He was often seen eating everything in sight.
One sketch shows him singing a song about all the food he likes to eat, done in a style that parodies a typical opera duet. The entire song was sung in Italian with English subtitles.
In another episode Pavarotti is a guest in "The South Bank Show" with Melvin Bragg, where he talks about a typical day in his life. Clips show Pavarotti doing "throat exercises" and having several meals after other. Finally he eats his micophone and belches loudly into the camera.
