Party girl Charlotte comes of age

Charlotte Church celebrates her 21st birthday today.

Charlotte Church celebrates her 21st birthday today.

But the party-loving star won’t be hitting the clubs.

Instead she plans to spend the day quietly at home in Cardiff with her family and boyfriend Gavin Henson, according to her spokeswoman.

The former Voice of an Angel may be a multi-millionaire, but she has issued a modest present list.

“For my birthday I’ve told my nan to get me jewellery, because she is addicted to QVC, and I want some hair tongs.

“My mum will probably get me things from her clothes shop, which is good because I’ve got a thing for shoes,” she said recently.

But an engagement ring from Welsh rugby star Henson wouldn’t go amiss.

“If Gavin gave me an engagement ring I’d say yes – probably – but it’s really not a big deal,” she said.

“But I’ve told him not to go nuts with my birthday presents because then we start having to outdo each other, which is really time-consuming!”

The couple have been together for two years and Charlotte has declared: “He’s the one.”

The star returns to our screens this Friday with the second series of her Channel 4 chat show.
