Birthday and sources

In 2018, Catherine Tate confirmed in her interviews for Good Morning Britain and Breakfast With Em, Grant & Ed that she was born on December 5, 1969. Also The Times mentioned this date in 2010. May 12, 1968 is the wrong date. Day and month were mistakenly reversed. The year is not right too.

Sources: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/catherine-tate-quite-a-character-hvvj577m3j3 https://www.theguardian.com/theguardian/2006/apr/29/weekend7.weekend https://www.theguardian.com/media/2005/dec/23/bbc.television The preceding unsigned comment was added by DonnaNoble12345 (talk • contribs) .

I just want to say that I don't entirely understand the policy of "people saying what their birthdays don't count." Why aren't they, that seems logical. Ben Moore512 17:38, June 19, 2018 (UTC)
Ben Moore512 the reason is given at Tardis:Valid sources#Self-reference disallowed. And DonnaNoble12345, do not link to off-site videos, it's a violation of Tardis:Video policy. We don't have a problem with correcting a date that is wrong, but it must be done by the wiki's rules. Shambala108 17:52, June 19, 2018 (UTC)
Both Guardian links only provide 1969 as the year. The Times link is behind a registration/paywall, so I am not able to check it. Information from Tate herself cannot be used due to the above-mentioned policy.
Unfortunately, there is plentiful contradicting information: for instance, [1], which is an article entitled "The very best Catherine Tate characters to celebrate her 50th birthday" and is published on May 12, 2018.
Given the disputed nature of this information and multiple contradictory sources, I am removing the birthday from the infobox, which is only to contain indisputable facts. Amorkuz 18:54, June 19, 2018 (UTC)
Ah, well that makes sense Shambala. Ben Moore512 20:18, June 19, 2018 (UTC)
