Teen soprano Charlotte Church celebrated her 19th birthday on 18 February (05) by partying non-stop for three days.

The Voice Of An Angel beauty started the festivities with a $950 (GBP500) shopping spree in London on Friday (18FEB05) before returning to her Cardiff, Wales, flat for a party which lasted until Saturday (19FEB05). She then she moved on to a local bar for vodka cocktails.

And the following Sunday (20FEB05) morning, Church enjoyed a champagne celebration at her parents' pub and visited numerous bars and clubs in the area, before heading off to a nearby health farm.

She says, "Wow, what a party. I'm spending the rest of the week in a health farm just to recover. But I needed to celebrate leaving those embarrassing teenage years behind me, and starting afresh as a slightly wiser woman."
