The trio, no doubt, had a lot to catch up on, and spoke exclusively about fame, their first impressions and keeping their friendship alive despite the distance.


"It was my doing really," said Dundee-born Carla, who lives in Beverly Hills with her American media executive husband Alex Luton.

"I told the girls they had to come over. It's been two years since we were last all together at my wedding here in LA, and despite the Skpying and phone calls, we all felt we needed some proper time together again."

Determined to make the most of their time together, Kate, Carla and Clare borrowed a classic Cadillac and cruised the streets of Tinseltown.

"One of the highlights for me was Kate wearing my Daisy Duke shorts," said Carla. "At the gas station when she was filling up the car, Clare and I were just looking at her, saying 'Do you think she thinks she's in some movie we don't know about?'"

Their ease with one another comes from a friendship that dated back to 2000, when Kate, 48, joined GMTV.

"Kate came in with a blaze of publicity from Sky News and I thought, 'Who the hell does this one think she is?' Plus she had the worst dress sense of anyone I knew," said Carla. "But it literally took a few days for us to be best friends, sharing sausage sandwiches in the canteen."

"There was an air of professionalism, of course, we had a job to do, but there were so many times we were on the cusp of just losing it," she added. "Working with your best friends is a hoot."
