  • She didn't get her ears pierced until 1987 at the age of 23, when she had them pierced live on air during the BBC's annual Children in Need charity telethon. This was the result of some friends of hers, who'd been trying to talk her into getting her ears pierced for some time, telling her that if she had them done live on air, they'd make a big donation to the show.
