"I’d loved her for years and we’ve always hugged when we met but we didn’t know each other.”

She continued: “I really wanted her to duet with me on I Know Him So Well so I asked David Walliams for her number.

"She was heavily pregnant but she couldn’t have been nicer or more enthusiastic when I called her and the final result is better than I even imagined."
