We thought the next thing that Kate would take on was a singing career, but it turns out that she's caught the acting bug instead. She's set to star in a Comic Relief special called Little Britain's Big Night on November 22. David Walliams, one of the show's actors, evidently talked her into it. He says,

"I've known Kate socially for a little while and she and Pete came to our show one night and liked it....So we thought, let's be cheeky and see if we can convince her and she was up for it. The thing about Kate is that she's funny in her own right so we think it'll be brilliant. It'll be a speaking role but I don't want to give too much away. When you see her and what she'll be wearing and doing, it'll be a big surprise."

He added: "Kate has natural comic talent. It's just that most people don't know it because they see her in pictures and beautiful people aren't allowed to be funny. But I know she's going to be great. It's a real coup and we're absolutely chuffed."
