My favourite actress, Kate Beckinsale (42), who will find the time one day to meet family relations in Northern Ireland, will soon be here on the silver screen in her new film Love And Friendship.

Kate was only five when her father, actor Richard Beckinsale who played Lennie in Porridge opposite Ronnie Barker, died suddenly at only 31. Harry Beckinsale, whose business is media design and print in Belfast's Portview Trade Centre, is definitely related to Kate and has the family tree to prove it.

Kate will be glad to know that he has just been presented with the British Empire Medal for voluntary services to education. Harry has been vice-chairman of the Board of Fleming Fulton Special School for 20 years.
