Not according to this contemporary painting of her performing for Nelson and the matelots of HMS Victory, to great acclaim I hear. Unfortunately she wasn't used to ships and her tray tilted upwards and deposited the tankards of warm beer and salt beef sarnies all over the sailors!

Although a celebrated beauty in her younger days, she was also a great fan of the grog and the scran, and grew quite corpulent. I read an account once that when she was very pregnant with Nelson's daughter, no one noticed. 'Nuff said.
