Patsy is to front a new ad campaign to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the company’s first pea harvest. She is to front up the new Birds Eye Grow Your Own initiative which will see free packs of seeds being given away with various products.
Her first advert for frozen peas saw Patsy famously making the noise of a pea popping out of a pod by using her finger in her mouth.
In recent years Patsy has been seen in Strictly Come Dancing as well as being known for playing the part of Sadie King in Emmerdale and Faye Morton in Holby City. She also appeared in a number of films in the 1980’s including Absolute Beginners and Lethal Weapon 2.
She has some surprising family links as well with her father having known several notorious London gangland figures such as the Krays. In fact her brother’s godfather was Reggie Kray. She also has links to the music industry, firstly by virtue of her role as lead singer of 80’s pop group Eighth Wonder, who had 2 Top 20 Uk singles. Secondly she was married to two big rock stars, Jim Kerr and Liam Gallagher.
Reports say the couple tied the know at a quiet affair on a farm in Somerset. They have been engaged since August last year.
Although it was said to be quite low-key this did not stop the couple inviting a load of well-known showbiz chums such as Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal. They also managed to secure the top rated singer in the world for their reception. Despite allegedly turning down a request to appear at last year’s Royal wedding it seems that Adele has been persuaded to sing at the Mulligan/Mumford wedding today.
Prior to getting together both Mulligan and Mumford were in long-term relationships. Carey dated actor Shia LaBeouf until October 2010 while Marcus was involved with singer Laura Marling. Laura is of course closely linked with Marcus’ group Mumford & Sons through their emergence in the West London folk scene.
Carey is soon to be seen in an adaptation of the critically acclaimed Ian McEwan novella On Chesil Beach, which is to be directed by Sam Mendes. Marcus meanwhile has been working on Mumford & Sons’ second studio album.
