'TV's toughest female goes sledging with her two youngest fans. For the leather-clad, judo-bashing Avengers girl is also an auntie. Diana Rigg, 26, who is Cathy Gale's successor in the new Avengers series, went home to Leeds for Christmas to spend Christmas with her family. Yesterday she took out her nieces Amanda Rigg, three, and Katherine, 14 months, for a snow ride.'
