The singer speaks publicly about the ordeal for the first time
Appearing on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, Katherine broke down as she told of the ordeal, which happened when she was a student in London.
Aged just 19 the singer was walking home alone after an evening with friends from Royal Academy Of Music, where she was studying.
She recalls, ‘I was walking across the bridge, near Paddington. I felt someone too close to me and he, within seconds, was in front of me, trying to drag me down this gangway and the police believe he was trying to rape me.
‘Somehow I managed to get out of his grip. I wanted to kill him. I was so angry about it.’
During the interview the star also talked about her experimentation with drugs
Looking gorgeous in a stunning silver dress, Katherine mentioned her struggles with body image. She once plummeted to six and a half stone during a diet that went ‘too far’.
