A Right Shower

by | 22nd, July 2004

‘THE great thing about being a celebrity, even a D-lister like TV presenter and model Kate Chapman, is that you get to have celebrity friends.

Beverley always wanted the job of farming correspondent

Admittedly, not ones than anyone’s ever heard of, but then who had heard of Kate before they opened this week’s Hello! magazine?

Kate, we are helpfully reminded, is ‘best known as Ian Wright’s co-host from the 1999 TV show Guinness World Records’ – which does beg the question of what she’s worst known for.

But she’s about to give birth to her first child with 37-year-old Jason Durr, who ‘famously played the lead role of Mike Bradley in ITV’s Heartbeat’.

And that’s excuse enough for Hello! to drop in on Kate’s baby shower, held at myhotel in Chelsea and see who else is around.

Why, there’s model agency owner Sandy Easby, sitting beside Professor Caroline Flint, of the Royal College of Midwives; that’ll be actress Neve McIntosh trying to wrestle a scone out of the hands of footwear designer Tracey Neuls.

And who could miss the sparkling face of journalist Beverley Turner chatting to Kate as nutritionist Alli Godbold and TV presenter Richard Randall look on.

But who’s that sitting on their own the back of the room? ‘Friend’ Pam Wilde – ‘a mine of information for a first-time mum,’ says Kate.

A woman without a title, say we – and very soon, we’ll wager, an ex-friend unless she pulls her socks up and does something about that.’
