Jane McDonald thinks everyone should be celebrating the Platinum Jubilee.

The 59-year-old star jumped at the chance to perform in the seaside town of Scarborough in her native Yorkshire on Saturday (04.06.22) in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's 70 years on the throne and thinks that the "historic" moment should be acknowledged by the whole country.

She said:"Scarborough is the Queen's Jubilee. Yorkshire's Queen's Jubilee. I love Yorkshire, I just love it and I was lucky that I got to spend quite a lot of time up in Yorkshire when I was doing ['My Yorkshire'] and then this lovely gig came up. They said, 'Would you like to do the Queen's Jubilee at Scarborough Arena?' Which part of yes do you not get here?

I think it's a time in history that we should all be celebrating and it's going to be spectacular."

The 'You're My World' songstress shot to fame on BBC reality docusoap 'The Cruise' back in 1998 and while she went on to have a successful TV career as a long-serving panellist on 'Loose Women' before fronting a slew of travel documentaries for Channel 5, admitted that it all could have "gone so horribly wrong" for her.

Speaking on James Martin's 'Saturday Kitchen', she added: "It was working on a cruise ship [that got me started.] . My friend came and she said, 'You should come on board'. I was doing the club circuit for so long and you know, it's like everything else and I just thought, 'I want to do something different. And then my mate, Vicky came and said, 'I'm doing a cruise, why don't you come on that? And I went straight away for three weeks and then I got back and it just so happened that the BBC were on at the same time as I was doing my show.But it all could have gone so horribly wrong!"
