“I’ve had a facial because my skin’s trashed from the make-up and the fake tan. I’ve bought some flowers.

“I just wanted to say thank you all, actually. I don’t know whether or not I had said properly how made up I am and how grateful I am, all your messages, people stopping me in the street saying ‘you did it!’

“Just never take that for granted, that support.”

She added: “I had the best time and thanks to you lot it’s all rounded off brilliantly. Have the best Christmas, and thank you.”
