  • Mother of Katie, Alexander and Rory.
  • Her father's full name was Richard Alan John Asher and her paternal grandfather's name was Felix Asher.
  • Plays the piano, guitar and flute.
  • Paul McCartney stayed overnight with the Ashers in 1964 when he missed his train to Liverpool; within weeks he'd practically moved in with them.
  • Her father, Dr. Richard Asher, was the first to identify Munchausen's syndrome, naming it after Baron Munchausen instead of himself (which she commented was typical of him). It's a disease where the afflicted fakes physical illness - usually acute, dramatic, and convincing - and wanders from hospital to hospital for treatment.
