Jane, 52, has won top reviews from critics for her performances at the Winter Gardens Theatre, Blackpool.

She took over the role from former X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger.

She said: “We had a problem with people saying ‘Well it would be nice if the star actually turned up on the show’.

“I haven’t missed a performance – I’ve done every single one and haven’t missed a night.”
