On today’s episode I’m joined by actress, singer and devoted mother, Martine McCutcheon. Martine is best known for her role in Eastenders playing Tiffany, the on-off love interest of Grant Mitchell. After Eastenders, Martine went on to change her career path and started singing, landing herself a chart topping hit with Perfect Moment in 1999. Many of us will also know Martine as Hugh Grant’s gorgeous love interest, Natalie, in the Richard Curtis romcom, Love Actually.
Life hasn’t been plain sailing for Martine and things got complicated when she started struggling with her health back in 2011. However, she’s now fighting fit and has just released her new Christmas EP, Home For Christmas - which is just fantastic by the way!
In this episode, we discuss her time in isolation and how we’ve all been encouraged to be kinder as a nation, her struggles with pregnancy and her health and how she has become a stronger and more positive person as a result. Martine also talks about her greatest love which is her passion for creativity and how she hopes the arts will bounce back stronger than ever!
