One week she was watching Top of the Pops, the next week she was on it. In this episode of Cutting Remarks Denise Mina rummages through Clare Grogan's press cuttings to discover the truth behind the headlines and how the 'double-whammy' of Gregory's Girl and Altered Images affected her life.

Clare opens up about what it was like to be thrust into the public eye at such a young age, the impact the critics had on her confidence, why she intensely disliked being viewed as a sex symbol, and how after two decades running from the little girl persona forced on her at the height of her pop success, she reclaimed her songs and made the music her own again.
