My all time favourite childhood pet, although I didn't fully realise it at the time.

Tabatha, funnily enough wasn't named Tabatha because she was a Tabby, we named her after Samantha's daughter in Bewitched. She used to love leaping up onto her hind legs in order to get cheese - of all things. I've never met a cat yet who's been able to do the same. She was a very patient cat, far more patient with four growing lads than you'd ever expect a cat to be.

Eventually she grew old and frail, but carried herself with a regal air. One morning she was gone.

It was funny listening and watching the hyprocrits on Sunrise bitching about Wood. I'd bet the entire amount he got that if Today Tonight had snared the exclusive they'd be defending it to the cows came home.

If I were Douglas Wood then the first thing I'd have done once I touched down at that first press conference wou…
