She's aged terribly though, and now looks at least 25.
Matt Holt: Matt is an increasingly sought-after stand-up, who will be 'warming up' audiences for the forthcoming Mitchell & Webb TV series.

He's gone on to great success on the stand-up circuit around the United Kingdom.
Howard Read: Depsite what John Humphrys says, Howard's lullaby is played on a ukulele, not a mandolin.
