In October 2004, Kate Winslet was persuaded by a friend to call a radio station (Xfm) to clinch a ?10,000 prize (offered to listeners for tracking down celebrities and getting them to call the show). Xfm DJ Christian O'Connell was stunned by Winslet's saucy remarks. "Is there anything else I can do to win this ten grand for my friend?" she asked. "I could send you my pants [knickers]... Do you want them clean or dirty?"
