Can't say I had a ball on question time, that's not a Cardiff/Welsh audience that I would recognise. However thanks for your support twitter— Charlotte Church (@charlottechurch) October 1, 2015
I never quite saw the point of Charlotte Church. A young girl who could sound like an adults soprano was remarkable, but why not just listen to an adult soprano?
Boy trebles, by contrast, have a discrete repertoire to sing and their careers are mercifully brief.
Church is still with us and has branched out into politics, aided by Question Time's mania for celebrities.
It is also striking how often these days the people who speak up for the views of the Labour left now come from showbiz.
That trend will only accelerate, given how few Labour MPs share their leader's views. It also seems that expressing left-wing views is now obligatory if you want a career in comedy.
The right-wing alternative, which consisted of people who played golf with Jimmy Tarbuck, seems to have died out in recent years.
Charlotte Church did not enjoy appearing on Question Time last night, but her tweet above is instructive.
Though right-wingers always complain that the show's audience is biased against them, the BBC is at pains to make it representative of the wider public.
So it may not be unfair to see Charlotte Church as experiencing discomfort on encountering the electorate and then retreating to the cosy womb of social media.
There she need meet only people who agree with her.
As this approach is likely to be typical of the Coybynista in the coming months, it is appropriate that she should represent them on Question Time.
