I know, what's that about? Surely singing opera songs made it kind of implicit. Apparently not. At the first night of the Hay Festival, Forces Sweetheart and Welsh nationalist Jenkins revealed that she had never claimed to be an opera star.
She told the audience that opera was still her long-term aim. Jenkins claimed to have been "annoyed" about the criticism for her style of singing, such as when Dame Kiri Te Kanawa's described her as an "opera fake" earlier this year. But she said: "I have always set myself as 30 the time to go into opera." Oh, and quizzed on her relationship with Strictly Come Dancing star Gethin Jones, she replied simply: "He's fine". Spoilsport.
I think that's as good an excuse as any to have another look at the Jenker and the Rhyddler giving it loads on The X Factor. Will you join me over the page, and tell me - beautiful voice? Or pretty much exactly what Mrs Piggy would sound like?-->
