We were startled by Contact Music's suggestion that Julia Fordham's sister was "cashing in on her success" by writing a book about her; it's not as if Fordham has been challenging Kylie and Coldplay at the top end of the charts - we always thought that Woman Of The 80s was a bit of a mistake to record at the time; twenty-odd years on, and it seems a fatal error.

Still, we always had a soft spot of Fordham, who we always thought of as an approachable Alison Moyet; her sister's book is a self-deprecating account of her life as Julia's assistant.

Look, you can buy it:

Claire Fordham: Plus One - A Year In The Life of a Hollywood Nobody
. It's got a puff on the front from Tracy Ullman, which probably tells you everything you need to know.

Meanwhile, Julia is about to become a mother for the first time any moment now.
