She posted on Instagram: “We’re in the toon today. Newcastle I hope you’re ready to give it everything the next 3 shows cos I tell everyone who’ll listen you’re one of the best crowds in the world – my family and friends are in and nothing makes me prouder than performing at home! Howay the mixers!”
Jade’s post comes after she admitted to being “overwhelmed,” at being back out on tour. Posting a photo of herself on stage, she wrote: “Feel so overwhelmed being back onstage doing my most favourite thing in the world again with my sisters. No better feeling.”
