Katherine exclusively told The Sun: “There’s been something special about singing for people in this way during lockdown, it’s stripped everything back.

“I would normally have an orchestra, conductor and all of these elements that go into a show and now it’s just me and a backing track.

“Now my husband is my sound man, my children are dancing around behind me and it’s a full family show.”


The performance will have helped Katherine get over the horror of being attacked while on her way to a charity gig rehearsal last December.

She rushed to the aid of a pensioner being robbed, when she was also set-upon by the female attacker.

Katherine, who sang later in the charity show, said: “I was shaken up initially. But my instinct is always to keep going.”
