‘I have to admit, my nerves are a little bit higher than they usually are,’ she told People before the show.

‘I’ve cried a lot but mostly tears of happiness. This is the first major show I’ve done that will be broadcasted across the world on TV, which raises the stakes big time.

‘But I’m more excited than anything else,’ she explained.
