IT'S little wonder Claire Catterson can sing, dance and act with the best of them.

As as a teenager, the starlet had singing lessons from crooner Marti Pellow her sister's fianc .

Then she had acting sessions with her cousin hunky Hollywood actor Gerry Butler.

And to finish the masterclass, she got dancing lessons from sister Eileen a former Miss Scotland, catwalk model and champion disco dancer.

Now Claire, 23, has blossomed into a lead role in the London Palladium musical, To Die For.

Claire, from Erskine, Renfrewshire, said: "With all that help, I guess I would be really embarrassed if I couldn't sing a note or feel at ease on stage."

Yesterday Marti, who is appearing in the hit musical Chicago, said: "I'm very proud to have played a part in getting Claire interested in music.

"She's worked very hard to get this part and deserves success."
