Sophie Ellis-Bextor does the school run in an electric Tuk Tuk

She’s doing discos in the kitchen,
touring with Steps in the evening.
It’s Liverpool this week, Glasgow next week.
Her book is out in hardback, she’s spinning plates.
My knees are murder on the living room floor.
Sophie Ellis-Bextor has five kids.
I might go to Costa later, let the men
from the bookies blow raspberries at my son.
