Cat Deeley presents MTV's Hit Show and is a model at Storm.

''I think people should try and preserve the environment but there really is a problem with the transport system. It's such a nightmare getting anywhere on the Tube and that's why so many young people have cars.

''The older generation are definitely more stuck in their ways when it comes to pollution. They think we are going to do something about the environment because we have been taught about it at school. I learnt quite a lot at school. I knew about the destruction of the ozone layer and global warming, so you could say I'm fairly environmentally aware ... I think eco-warriors probably take it all a bit too far. It puts people off and there is no way my mum would like me associated with people in those clothes!

''Sometimes there is no point being noisy about issues like the environment because you have got to put your point across intellectually. People like Swampy believe in what they are doing, which is good, but I don't think they are going about it in the right way.''
