Shes been famous for over 30 years now and she looks as good as ever!
In the Countdown stars interview with Piers Morgan she broke down when Richard Whiteley was talked about.
The maths whiz worked with Mr Whiteley on the Channel 4 programme for 23-years since its inception in 1983.
Richard died in 2005 from complications after having heart surgery, aged 61.
‘It still hurts very much. I loved him, I really loved him.
‘He was more than just nice, he was funny, funny, funny. Every time we were in studio together I would cry laughing.
‘He was just a joy to be with and I loved him. Not in that way, just a genuine, pure thing.’
Also in the interview she talked about the moment she found out about Whiteley’s death:
He’d gone in for a heart operation and I spoke to Kathy immediately afterwards and it was the first bit of good news we’d had…that the surgeon thought the operation had gone very well and hadn’t taken as long as they’d thought.
‘And that was the first time in six weeks that I thought there was anything to feel joyous about.
‘Then the next day I didn’t hear anything. I was at somebody’s house and I was shaking with nerves and I was just worried about him.
‘And then I was at home and the kids had gone to bed and then Claire [Pizey, Countdown executive producer] rang to say.’
