The bad news for British Fiona fans (menopausal housewives and, er, my good self, sitting with a bowl of Chunky Chunky Nut Flakes in front of the TV at 7AM) is that in the US, Fiona’s part will be played by some arriviste called Katie Couric.
Who? What’s wrong with you Yanks?! We thought you dug our crazy accents and our love of tea with milk in it, and so on. But no! Clearly, poor Fiona won’t cut it down the the multiplex in Milwarkee, saying toe-mar-toe. Well, your loss!
Look what you’re missing, my friend. Fiona’s star shines brightly: She starred in the 2000 TV movie Room To Rent (as, er, a TV presenter); a TV compilation of bloopers (It’ll Be Alright on The Night 11– as herself, fumbling some links and generally being rather lame); and her best work to date – The Bodyshape Challenge fitness video.
Watch out, Hollywood – Here come The Brits!! Or maybe not.
