Clare's your classic Catholic Watford girl binge drinker. She's both saint and sinner. At 16 she lost her virginity (naughty), but three years later than the Virgin Mary and she was last in her class to lose it, so she's no Mary Magdalene (excellent). She's been with this boy ever since (very good). He looks like Jesus (even better) and he's a carpenter (she's struck gold). Now they're getting married, in Vegas, by a fake Catholic priest to please her mum. Complicated? Wait for her wedding speech (if she's not too wasted).
