To corrupt the old football chant, she mainly wins when she’s singing.

Impressionist Naomi McDonald makes a robust Fringe debut, mimicking plenty of celebrities from the tabloid end of the spectrum – Sharon Osbourne, Cheryl, Kerry Katona – and making a decent fist of all of them.

However she generally hasn’t quite found the holy grail of impersonators, of being able to create caricatures that could almost stand alone as comedy characters if you didn’t know the celebrity being spoofed.

Lewis MacLoud’s Nigel ‘no, let me speak’ Farage on Dead Ringers is probably the best example of this. In comparison, McDonald’s take on Bear Grylls in Waitrose feels rather flat, and that’s before we add in all the predicable references to faddish foods.

One clear exception is McDonald’s Fearne Cotton, who is a delight – absolutely bonkers and giddily happy with the fact, striking all manner of bizarre angular poses as she speaks. No wonder McDonald returns to her to introduce several of the other creations. McDonald adopts an even weirder position as Kim Kardashian, literally talking out of her arse.
