Phone call interrupts Church duet

Charlotte Church was about to perform with the Klaxons

Charlotte Church performed an impromptu duet with Mercury Prize-winners Klaxons - but was interrupted by her mobile phone.

The singer teamed up with the guitar band after only a few minutes' practice when they were both booked to appear on BBC Radio 5 Live this afternoon.

But just as the group were about to begin, Charlotte's phone went off and she had to rifle through her bag to switch it off.

"I do apologise," the embarrassed singer told presenter Richard Bacon.

Charlotte and the band - who won the Mercury in 2007 for Myths Of The Near Future - had just the duration of a news bulletin to rehearse the song Twin Flames.

"This was very unexpected when I woke up this morning," she said before joining in on the acoustic track.

Afterwards the band's James Righton was impressed with the collaboration. "What are you doing next week? We've got a UK tour," he told her.

Taking a nap, solitary walk or hot bath will revive your spirits. Get into the habit of spending more money on creature comforts. Treat such as gourmet food, beautiful clothes and intriguing books are investments in your happiness. Others may object at being put farther down on your list of priorities, but that's their problem.More
