Natasha has dragged herself up by her bootstraps and is a successful sales director for a food company, married to an eminent children’s author. She lives in a lovely house overlooking Barnes Common and has the archetypal perfect life, with three children, a nanny and all manner of other domestic help. It wasn’t always like that though. She was one of four kids and she came from a tenement block on the wrong side of Glasgow, and her father was unemployed and her mother secretly drank too much. She was the only one in her entire year at school who made it to university, and when she got there she had a thick Scottish accent that no-one could understand, especially not the incredibly posh Camilla, who was her roommate. They were the odd couple of the group, but they hit it off, and Natasha became Camilla’s chief protector when Camilla had a family crisis. At college Natasha was into running and hockey and Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’, playing it all the time, and she lived on Cup a Soups and Pot Noodles, and she had blonde spiky hair that she has never worn any different since. Natasha was always ballsily ambitious, but over the years she has become harder and more competitive, so these days it seems she won’t let anyone or anything stand in her way.
