This week in the Celebrity Clone Lab is Rochelle Humes, who if you don’t already know, is the clone of Donna Summer, just look at the resemblance!
In 1988, Donna Summer came to the UK to make an album with Stock, Aitken, and Waterman. During the recording of Another Place In Time, Summer’s DNA was taken so a duplicate singer could be created in the future. This album was released on March 20th 1989 and a day later on March 21st 1989, Rochelle was born… coincidence? We don’t think so.
Due to her clone-heritage, Rochelle also became a singer, first with the S Club Juniors aka S Club 8 and later with The Saturdays. Because Donna’s DNA was swabbed in the studio, one of Mike Stock, Matt Aitken, or Pete Waterman’s cells contaminated the sample and the laboratory thinks that’s the reason Rochelle Humes left music and became a television presenter instead.
We assume the contamination was caused by Waterman who once hosted The Hit Man And Her and Pop Idol. It was most likely Pete’s pube or flake of dandruff that led Humes to front similar shows; The Hit List and The Xtra Factor. “This is what happens when you try to clone Disco singers in a London recording studio” says a spokesperson from the Clone Lab adding “We’re very, very sorry for the mediocre music and TV that our clone has made”.
