She told Local Buyers Club: "I never really sang before that – I'd sing in the bath a bit – it didn't cross my mind to wonder if I could sing in tune or not! In those days there was a lot of freedom. Six weeks later I'd joined the band and we were on the road."

You may even recognise Andi's daughter – Miquita Oliver. The 36-year-old followed in her mum's footsteps by pursuing a career in film and music, and was perhaps best known for her work on MTV and 4Music. Miquita has also worked in radio for BBC Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra.
