Kate Moss met David Cameron and thought he was a plumber

In an interesting preview of tonight's Parky from Owen Gibson it transpires that David Cameron's name recognition in his constituency may not be that good. One of his constituents, Kate Moss, thought he was a plumber when they met:

Appearing on tonight's Parkinson show, the Old Etonian Conservative leader explains how the Croydon-born model thought he was "something to do with drainage" when they met recently.

Mr Cameron told Michael Parkinson he had been a little starstruck. Scrambling for something to say, he recalled that the model had a house in his Oxfordshire constituency.

"We'd had these terrible floods in West Oxfordshire and so I said, 'Very nice to meet you, very sorry about the flooding in your house. I know your local pub has been flooded, I've been to see the publican and I know you like to go to the pub and so I know it's going to reopen in six months,'" he said.

"So I went on like this, twittering on, and she turned around and said, 'God, you sound like a really useful guy, can I have your phone number?'"

Returning to his table, he told his fellow dinner guests: "The good news is, I met Kate Moss and she wanted my telephone number. The bad news is, I think she thinks I'm something to do with drainage."
