Martha Lewis and Eve Polycarpou were also known as donna & kbb. Why?
In a previous incarnation they were donna & kebab the award winning British Born Greek-Cypriot music/comedy duo that combined their brilliant improvised humour with original music and skillful comedy sketches. The change of name from donna & kebab to donna & kbb, for those who knew them, subtly marked the change of direction in their partnership.
