Cat Deeley Quotes

1. If I'm photographed when I'm out, that's definitely me wearing my own clothes.

3. I support British designers as much as I can.

4. If I'm out on the town a little smile often does the trick, but I'm an approachable girl. I'm not one of those people who sits in the corner trying to be cool. I'll be the one dancing on the table.

And, with no box over me, I was able to look down and see the saw going right through my bare waist and into the wood underneath me - I could even see my skin rippling as the saw cut through it.
