"Fruit And Nut Kate"
October 20, 1979

EVER wondered how the delicious Kate Bush manages to keep her curves in the right places in all those tight leotards the lady leaps around stage in?

Well, it's all down to what the lady eats, which apparently isn't vary much anyway, but when she does feel peckish, there's nothing Miss Bush likes to bite into better than a nut cutlet, some raw vegetables or a chunk of cheese, 'cos shapely Kate is a strict vegetarian.

However, that's not to say she isn't partial to the odd bar of choccy, and on her recent tour her mother would turn up at rehearsals with a huge bag containing fruit, nuts and countless Kit Kats -- Kate's favourite brand of choccy bar.

Despite the pressures of a pop packed life this little lady somehow manages to find the time to do all her housework herself.

Explains Kate "Unless the flat is tidy I just can't get on with my songwriting.

"There's just no way I can sit down at the piano when in the kitchen there's a sinkful of washing up."
