        Kathy is the soft Irish voice of Radio 4 news, but you might have her in your car if you have a Tom Tom, or know her as Posh Radio 4 Lady from the Scott Mills show, if you listen to Radio 1. She plays the ukelele. She's now writing a book based on a game she invented on Twitter. Trust us, she is brilliant. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathy_Clugston @KathyClugston
