She said: “I’m doing so much better. And you realise just how important your family and friends are.

“So I’ve been able to just carry on and my fans were just incredible. They got me through so much over the tour, so I’m very grateful.”

‘I was a mess’

Asked about her first gig after her loss, Jane revealed: “I was a mess, but they just got me through it. They really did.

“You can find love in many different ways. It can be a pet, it can be your fans, it can be your family, or your friends.”

She went on: “When you lose a lot of love – I lost my mum and Ed – and you just think, ‘I’m never going to fill that hole again’. But you do.

“It comes from other places, and that’s why you’ve got to let the light in and that’s what I’m doing.”

Furthermore, it seems ‘taking a moment’ informs how Jane currently feels about touring.
