  Comedian Katy Brand used to caricature Kate Winslet as a woman embarrassed by her movie star status and driven mad by her need to appear “down to earth”.

  In a dirty blonde wig and dishevelled red carpet gown, Brand-as-Winslet would pull out a sausage from her bra and chomp on it to prove what a “normal appetite” she had because she was “a normal mum” with a “normal body” and definitely not a Hollywood A-lister, oh no.
