Jamie M - I understand that there are two songs that you recorded for your greatest hits album but neither appeared, "Dancing In the Driver's Seat" and "Your Heart Or Mine", tell us a bit about these?

Hi Jamie
I demo'd these two songs 'Drivers seat' and 'Your heart of mine' for Barry Upton who wrote 'Only fools' for me ,they were not for my greatest hits album, Great songs though!

I've got tickets for the Rewind festival, can you give us a preview of your set list?
The rewind festivals will be great, I havent thought of my set yet.

I think a perfect role for you would be Mrs Johnstone in Blood Brothers. Is this a part you'd be interested in playing?
I would love to play Mrs Johnson in 'Blood Brothers' I think I am the right age for it, the songs are right for my vocal range, I hope to get the chance.

I always admired your passion for music and singing. Do you still have the same passion for performing that you had in the early days?
