There are some things you probably know about Katherine Jenkins. For example, you will be aware that the 30-year-old blonde mezzo-soprano has a huge voice, a tiny waist and a heaving bosom. But there are also some things you probably don’t know about Wales’ finest export. For example, did you know that she recently got engaged to ex-Blue Peter presenter Gethin Jones? Or that she used cocaine when she was at College?

"We’d all been drinking and when we got back to my friend’s house, I was offered cocaine,” she recalled to Piers Morgan three years ago. “Curiosity got the better of me and I said ‘yes’… …I took it a handful of times more after that, maybe five or six, including once in the loo of a London club… …I’d take up to three lines a night and would always feel absolutely terrible the next day. It was like the worst hangover in the world.”

And the revelations didn’t end there. “I also tried Ecstasy and MDMA,” she revealed. “They made me feel excited, passionate, in love with everyone and everything. But afterwards that made me feel worse than cocaine. I didn’t want to live the next day, it made me feel so depressed. It was horrible, just horrible.”

Wow. Eye-opening. But this partying is in Katherine’s past, so please don’t hold it against that taut body of hers. Please vote the opera star into this year’s FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World listing. Why? Because if you do, we get to print pics like this one of her partying (note: not like she used to) after this week’s Brit Awards…


"My face is up... ...sod it. Nice, aren't they?"
