Kiss Me Katherine
Everyone is locking lips, left, right, centre, up, down, you name it; it’s been kissed. And with Mistletoe hung everywhere, it’s little surprise that A Christmas Carol – this year’s Christmas Special – contains a little snog or two.
That however doesn’t make the onscreen lip action any less daunting for the kissing couple. So much so that Katherine Jenkins has told The Sun’s Bang Showbiz that her kiss with co-star with perennial whats his faceÂ Danny Horn was the most nerve-wracking experience in her life – and she’s sung for the Pope!
“The kissing was the most stressful part of the whole thing,” she said. “My mum’s got to watch that on Christmas Day!
Well, her mom and millions of turkey-stuffed fans of the stunning mezzo-soprano.
To prolong the agony, co-star Matt Smith purposely ruined take after take in order for her and Horn to do it again and again.
“He kept doing it on purpose going, ‘Oh sorry, I messed it up. You’ll have to do it again.’”
Despite her misery her woes were enlivened somewhat by her friends and boyfriend, former Blue Peter presenter and twinkled toed Gethin Jones reactions to her on screen tongue wrestling:
“I could hear my friends laughing when the kissing parts came on so that made me feel a little bit better.”
