She added, “When I told my mom that I met a modeling agent who wanted me to go to London, she would say, ‘Oh, I don’t think you’re very attractive’ and I was like, ‘Neither nor am I.

Kate said she and her mother agreed that she “may also try” to make it into the modeling industry.

“I definitely didn’t think I was a typical subject,” she said.

In honor of her parents, Kate chose to play the Whiter Shade of Pale for King Cortes, as her mother Linda and father Peter walked down the aisle to make a member of the song.

Later on the show, Kate talked about how her parents’ divorce when she was 13 was a “dark time” for her.

Kate said that while she was living with her mother and her brother Nick chose to live with his father, the two brothers only saw each other at school.

She added that the family split caused her to derail and start hanging out with older boys who took her to bars in London.

“I started smoking and hanging out with people much older than me, a lot of older boys like that who took me under their wing and protected me,” Kate said.

They were taking me to London on the train. I would change from school uniform to clothes and go to Fred [a bar in Soho]. I didn’t even like the taste of alcohol.

Kate has spoken about her early days in modeling, including a frightening experience when a bra catalog photographer tried to make her take off her bra when she was 15.

“I was going to drink Long Island tea because it didn’t taste like alcohol, but of course it’s a strong drink.”

The model also revealed some shocking revelations about her early days in modeling, with a frightening experience when she was just 15 years old.

She recalls, “I had a horrible experience with a bra catalog,” she told BBC Radio 4’s programme. I was only 15 and he said, “Lift your head,” and she took off the shirt. And I was really shy about my body.

And he said, “Take off your bra,” and I sensed something was wrong, so I got my things and ran away. I think it sharpened my instincts. I could wrongly say “the United Nations is a mile away”.
