1 When on Room 101, she managed to get jellyfish thrown down the chute.
2 In the televised cartoon of Sid the Sexist back in 1992, hers was the voice of ‘Cilla Black’.
3 Her first dabble in showbusiness came writing punk poetry and performing in a band called Cathy La Crème and the Rum Babies.
4 Her happiest moments include passing her A plus, giving birth to a baby with all its bits intact and winning the Perrier.
5 Her favourite quotation comes from Hunter S Thompson: ‘I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone, but they’ve always worked for me.’
