Vanessa-Mae first hit the international music scene at the age of 10, and was the youngest violinist ever to record Beethoven and Tchaikovsky violin concertos. Over eight million record sales have propelled her onto the Rich List and into celebrity status. But her success has been over-shadowed by a turbulent relationship with her mother, who was the prime force behind her career as a young musician. In the BBC One programme The Making of Me, Vanessa investigates how much of her ability was inherited, how much was shaped by her mother and how much was down to her own work. Vanessa joins Jenni to talk about nature versus nurture.
The Making of Me is on BBC One on Thursday 7th August at 9pm
