Well, the highlight of my night has to be this… singing with the amazing children of the @griefencounter choir (These children have each lost a parent or a sibling and the choir was formed to help them get over their bereavement). You all took a little piece of my heart tonight – well done! You had the whole Palladium on their feet! 😘💙#guidinglighttour Photo Credit: Matt Thorpe Photography

When she was walking back to her London home, he sprang upon her and tried to drag her into an alley, but she managed to escape. He continued to pursue her and punched her to the ground, prompting her to curl up into a ball so that he was not able to rape her. After repeatedly kicking her, he eventually left with her wallet and has never been caught. When discussing the incident, she said "It was just awful. I was so shaken up. It took me a long time to get over it, and my mum was devastated. I genuinely believe I was very lucky".
