“I think it’s one of those days, isn’t it? Where, sometimes even if you’re in a huge group of people it’s quite possible to feel lonely or if you’ve lost someone you really care about, and this is your first Christmas without them, or if you couldn’t get home to your family.

“Anyway, I’m sending everybody a great big Christmassy hug.”

Fans were quick to rally around Davina, sending her warm wishes and thanking her for giving a voice to those who are lonely on Christmas Day.
