Weve interviewed Lady GaGa on the show. She did an acoustic set upstairs and played the piano with her feet. Of course she did. GaGas also playing at this years Lite-supported Jingle Bell Ball with Windows 7, which Snowdon and Vaughan will present. Theres little doubt that the singer who murdered herself on the stage at this years MTV Awards will have trouble upstaging Enrique Iglesiass passionate on-stage kiss with a girl from the audi- ence at last years charity ball. Snowdon had a very, very brief pop career herself back in 1997. She admits her album Spell It Out was pretty ropey but sometimes life takes you in dif- ferent directions and you just sort of have to go with it. Snowdons life has taken her all over the shop. She started out as a model but is most famous for her stint on Strictly Come Dancing. She still watches the show religiously and would love to go on it again, but not as a judge. I would basically have an operation to change sex and come back as a man so Id be able to dance with Lilia Kopylova. Snowdons five-year, on-off relation- ship with George Clooney also made headlines, but they didnt meet up when he was last in London. We actually havent seen each other for quite a few years, she says. But the Hollywood star did sponsor her to the tune of 12,000 to jump out of a plane last month for charity. Imagine if hed been a UK taxpayer and we couldve got that gift aid -- it would have been amazing. I suggest we get Lite readers to send photos of themselves to the single -- but dating -- presenter. Yeah, that would be great, she replies, not entirely convincingly. But hey, maybe if I had a sex change...
