Thumbs Up Melua drives an Alfa

I was listening to Johnny Walker on Radio 2 whilst making me tea last night, and he had Katie Melua on doing some live songs and a chat. Suddenly between songs Johnny Walker asks her.

"Do you still have an Alfa Romeo?"
Melua "Yes, How did you know that?"
Walker "I've done my research. The exhausts make such a great noise don't you think?"
Melua "Yes they sound great"
Walker "Especially when you drop them down a gear or two and rev the engine"
Melua "Do you own one?"
Walker "I used too"

Made my day even better (I'd taken Bertie for a drive for the 1st time this year in the morning), you don't get celebs talking about other cars like that.

May be TOP GEAR need to get them both ( as obvious petrol heads) into the reasonably priced car!

Re: Melua drives an Alfa

I bet it's a spider

She's not the coolest pop star though unfortunately

One of the girls in Emmerdale drives a blue spider I noticed the other day. She's a very evil character but I'll give her, her dues when it comes to cars

It is a Spider - her interview was in the last issue of Feel UK - the Cloverleaf mag. It was Rory Bremner the issue before that....

Here's some more: -

Chris Variava in Basford, Nottingham. Authorised Alfa Romeo dealership - The Alfa Romeo Hall of Fame

I'm surprised Melua can see over the steering wheel to be honest!

Possible the dullest singer/songwriter I have ever heard! She should have stayed in the sea. Would rather listen to the Black Eyed Peas....well maybe not

Re: Melua drives an Alfa

Katie Melua is very attractive and intelligent, who cares about her music!

She is exactly the sort of person that should be driving around in an Alfa, thus promoting them.

By the way, Alfa red is the way forward me thinks
