Kate Moss Bags Her Own Radio Show This Christmas

The style icon has ditched the fashion world for the radio waves this festive season for her very own radio show (for a day) and we can't wait to listen

'I wonder what Kate Moss does at Christmas?' is a question I regularly ask myself this time of year.

Does she also have to lug a hefty suitcase across the lino floor of Euston station, cursing at fellow travelers while squishing a Marks & Spencer sandwich between her armpit and fumbling to find her train ticket?

Does her Christmas Eve involve watching re-runs of old Father Ted episodes, cracking open a bottle of Baileys before spending the majority of the evening prising the cat from the depths of the Christmas Tree?

Well, my fellow fashion fiends, these questions have now been answered because it looks like Kate Moss loves nothing more than a spot of radio hosting at Christmas. No, really.

Turning her back on the fashion world (momentarily), the British supermodel will co-host BBC Radio 6 Music's Shaun Keaveny's Show tomorrow (23 December) from 9 to 10 am – a time now being dubbed 'The Kate Moss Hour'.

Having admitted that she regularly tunes into the show, Moss has been recruited for a pre-recording of the show, which will reportedly cover all things Christmas and her love of music.

According to the show, Kate opens up about her perfect Christmas day and has said:

'I spend it in the country with my family, the whole family gathering. Anyone's welcome, any randoms as well. I like a random thrown in for good measure. It's just yeah, the full on Christmas works.

'Of course there's an Aga, yeah. Nothing ever fits in there, it's all a big drama. Running backwards and forwards between houses with who's got a bigger oven than me and we can just, potatoes are over there and turkey's over there and yeah, fun,' she added.

Revealing she's known as the 'Chief Gravy Maker' ('Oh the gravy. I am good with gravy'), she revealed she even has a secret gravy recipe which not even her family is aware of.

For her first co-hosting radio gig, Mossy also hand-picked some of her favorite Christmas tunes – including some from the likes of David Bowie, Soul Saints Orchestra, Charles Brown and The Staple Singers – and shed light on her favorite experiences in music.

Talking of her musical taste during her teenage years, she admitted she developed a taste for Run DMC and Digital Underground after going to the clubs in New York as a teenager, wearing 'a high top and a leather goose [jacket]'.

Meanwhile, her favorite music moments to date include dancing with James Brown at a Thierry Mugler fashion show, watching Led Zeppelin at the O2 alongside Paul McCartney, hanging out with Elvis Presley's family, and trying to squeeze into David Bowie's Station to Station outfit – albeit with some difficulty.

'When I saw him after that he was like 'mmm, I heard the clothes didn't fit.' All right, rubbing it in,' she joked.

However, nothing quite tops her firm friendship with Wham!'s George Michael as Moss, who is a self-professed huge Wham! fan, admitted that the two now live so close to each other that they hang out in each other's gardens.

'We have done in the past. When it's hot. He's got a pool, so when it's hot I'm like 'oh can Lila come and jump in your pool?' And he's like 'yeah, come over.' And we can actually climb from garden to garden over the walls with a ladder, we've done that a couple of times,' she admitted.

Can Kate Moss be on the radio every Christmas, please?
