Meet Tricia: She's not Scottish, she's better.

Luckily for Tricia her mum asked her when she was 7 whether she wanted to be Scottish or famous. Being a pretty sharp girl at the time and thinking on her feet she chose fame. Ever since she's never stepped out the limelight and has also been lucky enough never to have to step over the border into Scotland. (According to a Mintel report published in March 1936 being famous makes her 1437 times better than any living Scot).

Her fame and success over the last 15 years has come in many forms. The early days saw her getting hit upon by Wrexham, Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur striker Chris Armstong in a West End nightclub. Interestingly the same Chris Armstrong who in 1995 was the first Premiership player to be banned for cannabis consumption (Tricia maintains she was not involved). Only a couple of years later Tricia had her second brush with fame when she dated a guy who believed he was Jesus, who's story made page seven of the Croydon Guardian in 1999. Most recently (and significantly) she won over the hearts of our great nation in reaching the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent as a burlesque dancer in the group Caburlesque. Check her out doing her thing below, she's the naughty one stroking Dec's face at 3.00 mins with her feathers.

Her grandfather was a Sir, she hates Craig David, she's worked as a clown on a farm and a cleaner on a submarine and is now Karmarama's superb new receptionist and general office legend.

Be nice and say hello to her when you ring.
