“As a singer I couldn’t have lip fillers. So I decided, because I’ve got a really expressive face, to have some botox.”

She added: “And I was really scared but I have to say I don’t suffer from migraines any more.

“And I’m 40 this year so I’m going to be having a little bit more for my 40th. Plus I’m on tour and I want to feel good.”
