Proudest moment? Professionally speaking, walking through the door of 10 Downing Street for the first time as a special adviser was a definite career highlight. So was - if I’m wearing my ‘other hat’ as a singer - performing as a soloist with orchestra for the first time. Personally, though, I’m most proud of my lovely son.
