The Swagger Jagger singer also opened up about her relationship with Craig, calling it a “fairytale” after marrying aged only 20. They started dating when she was 18.

Cher has previously said of him: “We come from such different backgrounds. He’s so lovely. I’m so lucky. We definitely are a solid team and I think we just deal with anything that’s thrown at us.

“We’re so excited to be starting the most incredible – I hate to say journey, as I hate that word – but we are. It’s like a new start.”

The pair recently moved back to the UK from LA, with Cher saying it was because she wanted Delilah to grow up surrounded by family.

She went on to release two albums – Sticks and Stones in 2011 and Sorry I’m Late in 2014 – and enjoyed success in both the UK and USA.

Last year she delighted fans when she released her first official single in four years.
