Who is Emily Atack's mum?

It would seem as though the apple doesn't fall far from the tree for Emily, whose mum Kate Robbins, 64, is also an actress and has worked on many comedy shows.

Kate first rose to fame as a singer, however, finishing in third place on the Eurovision Song Contest in 1980 as part of the group Prima Donna. She then went on to release a hit single 'More Than in Love' which reached number two in the UK Official Charts. Around the same time, she landed a role on ITV soap opera Crossroads playing Kate Loring.

A talented songwriter, Kate went on to compose the first theme tune to Surprise, Surprise, which was performed by Cilla Black.

The actress is perhaps best known, however, for her work on ITV's satirical puppet show, Spitting Image, providing almost all of the female voices in the late 1980s and early 90s. Viewers may also recognise her for appearing on Victoria Wood's comedy series, Dinnerladies, in which she played Babs.

Who is Emily Atack's dad?

Emily Atack's dad is musician Keith Atack, who was married to Kate for almost 20 years from 1987 to 2007.

Keith made his debut as a guitarist at the tender age of 16 while playing with his first band, Child, in the mid-seventies at the Legendary Marquee Club.

He has also composed music for film and television and has worked on many TV tunes for the likes of Rory Bremner, Jo Brand and Harry Hill.
