In , Everett collaborated with Mike Vickers to release the single Captain Kremmen , based on one of his comedy characters. It peaked at number 32 in the UK charts on 12 November. This would peak at number 9 in the UK charts for the week ending 16 April. His co-host David Cash, in the documentary Unforgettable Kenny Everett , states that "Once I got to know him socially off the ship, it was very obvious that his sexual tendencies were homosexual and he looked at it as bad and so he fought it all the way.
During the general election campaign, the Young Conservatives invited Everett to their conference in an attempt to attract the youth vote. Egged on by film director Michael Winner , Everett bounded onto the stage, wearing the enormously oversized foam rubber hands familiar from his mock-evangelical character Brother Lee Love.
He shouted slogans such as "Let's bomb Russia! Everett later said he regretted the appearance  and claimed that he had taken the foam hands to the rally because the Tories "asked me first". Everett clarified that he was not a "full Tory", but that he had been appalled by the actions of Arthur Scargill , whom he saw as "inciting violence" and "rabble rousing" and who he thought looked like " Hitler reborn".
He had consequently supported the actions of Margaret Thatcher in opposing Scargill. He said he would stand up for gay rights if he were asked providing "it was a jolly occasion", but he also felt that being in a minority and in the public eye, he could do more for gay rights by showing that he was funny and human rather than by marching in the streets.
Everett became close friends with Freddie Mercury , the lead singer of Queen , after they met on Everett's breakfast radio show on Capital Radio in In his former wife, who had subsequently remarried to actor John Alkin , published an autobiography with a foreword from Everett.
But after its publication and newspaper serialisation, Everett denounced the book for outing him. The fallout resulted in Middleton and Everett communicating only via their lawyers. A year later, Everett and Mercury had reconciled when both were suffering with health issues due to complications with HIV. Everett was diagnosed as HIV positive in and he made his condition known to the public in His body was cremated at Mortlake Crematorium.
Everett is the subject of a episode of the Thames Television series Heroes of Comedy which covered his life and career from his beginnings on pirate radio up until his death. Friends and colleagues revealed what it was like to know and work with the man they affectionately dubbed "Cuddly Ken". Additionally, contemporary celebrities such as Chris Moyles and Chris Tarrant talked about their love for the funny entertainer and discussed the ways in which Everett had influenced them and their work.
It also featured archive footage. The documentary When Freddie Mercury Met Kenny Everett , broadcast on Channel 4, tells the story of the relationship between the two men from the moment they met in when Mercury was a guest on Everett's radio show, through lovers and drug taking to when both died of AIDS. It features affectionate interviews by many people who were close to him.
