I think she looked great too.

I was a fan of hers when I was about 13 and she was in Yazoo, - Upstairs at Eric's was my first album smile

I was looking at her on Graham Norton (chanel surfing) thinking is it? isn't it? but her voice convinced me - very distinctive, I liked it.

I think she looked great! Sounded pretty good too.

But I've always loved her voice and music.

I follow her on twitter and she was talking about chucking the gold discs away on there.

I think her house may have been demolished. Which is why she had the big clear-out. I'm sure I read that on her twitter feed.

Oh and she seems to have been steadily losing weight for a number of years. I saw her live at The Albert Hall in 2003 and she had lost a good amount of weight then. Saw her again about 3 years ago and was speechless when she appeared on stage as she was so slim.

Seeing her again in October - she always gives a great performance. Her voice gives me tingles.

I saw her performing live about three years ago and she was amazing. We were astounded when she came on stage as she looks so different. She had crippling stage fright at one point in her career. This is an interesting article.

People seem to be talking about two different appearances on Graham Norton. The talk of Johnny Vegas confused me somewhat!

I think they get a little research in so Alison would have OKayed the decluttering, I think the point was she didnt realy care about her gold discs or whatever and moved on, I agree it is rubbish though the last bit

I thought she looked well, but I didn't get the point of Graham asking her about throwing her stuff out, she moved house and decluttered as far as I could tell, I love the show in general but that last two minute interview with the singers is always rubbish.

This is not the one I read but tells it around and about the same smile

She did an interview a while back, about 2010 I think. Said that she lost the weight as she did not want to be dependent upon people caring for her as/when she got older. She said she was fiercely private and it bothered her that somebody might have to come take care of her if she was old and unhealthy and big. She's lost a lot more weight since that interview though, I think anyhow. I can't remember where I read it, sorry...

I didn't know it was her. I was only half watching and I just thought bugger me, that woman sounds like Alison Moyet. Whatever happened to her...

mrsjay Sat 27-Apr-13 20:32:01

I just think itis the dramatic change that got people

SwedishEdith Sat 27-Apr-13 20:24:45

I thought she looked great. She's nearly 52

EleanorFarjeon Sat 27-Apr-13 20:15:10

I think she looks much better thin than fat.

mrsjay Sat 27-Apr-13 18:05:41

I remember she opened a larger size clothes shop with dawn french in the early 90s ?

mrsjay Sat 27-Apr-13 18:04:39

I wondered where she went there was nothing of her, I suppose she likes the way she is and that is all that matters but...

SuedeEffectPochette Sat 27-Apr-13 17:06:02

Now when I was 15 she was fatter than me by a long way. I thought she looked great on Graham Norton (and sounded great too). These days, not only is she much thinner than me, she also seems to be younger too!

here ya go

She doesn't look great imo but she's fab anyway!

BiscuitFace Tue 10-Nov-09 11:32:49

she is alot older which may contribute to her looking a wee bit worse.

agree she wasn't that big but she had a whole eighties baggy clothes thing going on.

brimfull Tue 10-Nov-09 11:17:47

yes she wasn't that big
she did wear huge tent like clothes though didn't she?

there wasn't the choice then

I remember the largest bra size in marks was 38dd and they were few and far between

MoominmammasHandbag Tue 10-Nov-09 10:48:59

There was some old eighties footage of Alison Moyet on the other night. In my memories she was absolutely huge.

In actual fact she looked about a size 16.

I think our perception of what we regard as overweight has changed enormously in the past 25 years.
