Have a go! That's what they told Kate, and that's what she's been doing ever since (with varying degrees of success and adventure.) Downing a pint of Guinness faster than an Irishman still remains a high point. She obtained an English degree from somewhere (but it might not be hers), underwent a gruelling stint at drama school and survived London's comedy circuit as one half of a female double act. She landed on her feet bagging glamorous jobs such as white-van-woman (where she endangered the lives of pedestrians and other road users). In her role as Harrods's shop girl she could be seen perfecting the art of the bitchy put-down. She can usually be found down the "Sing When You're Minging Karaoke" doing a belting rendition of Dolly Parton's "Working 9 to 5". She is Welsh you see, and that's what they do, sing, sing lots.
