With ‘Believe’ bringing really big success for me outside of the U.K. for the first time it meant I have been touring around the world and that led to a gap from the studio. I really feel like the gap has done me the world of good. Throughout that time I was able to collect songs that I really loved.
I’ve only ever wanted to be a singer I never wanted to be famous.
In Heaven I believe my dad is somewhere doing something nice. I feel I’ve been too lucky to travel this far without somebody guiding me.
I’m still a Welsh girl at heart so I’m staying in the U.K. for the Olympics it’s such an exciting time for Britain so it’s amazing to be a part of it.
I’m over the moon to be involved in the ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas special. I can’t quite believe it as it’s a part of the family tradition at the Jenkins household. I heard the news that I got the role on my 30th birthday and it was the best birthday present ever.
If you love somebody you love them. My parents had a 25-year age gap between them and my mum was the breadwinner my dad the house husband. I’m a strong believer that a good relationship can work whatever the situation.
I would absolutely definitely never sell my wedding pictures to a magazine. I’d like it to be a special day not a photo shoot. And once you’ve done that your marriage becomes everybody else’s business.
I really feel confident about my dancing now so I hope there could be a place for me in the West End or on Broadway – maybe a musical maybe my own show.
I have such happy memories of performing in a choir and I don’t think I’d have got where I am today without all that experience. So my advice to young singers is to either join your school or church’s choir or find one in your local area. Choral music at any level teaches you so much about musicianship and blending your voice.
I always want to give my best and do the best I can. I know when I have sung my best and when I haven’t. There can be stresses and hassles with time travel and press attention. I just have to adapt and find a way of dealing with it.
