“I am hoping it will be released by the end of next year.”

She also hit back over her West End show Viva Forever being criticised as a box office flop and said it had pulled in more punters than other productions.

“It was a good idea, of course I was disappointed – had the climate been slightly different (it would have done better),” she said.

“It went on for 10 months and I was very proud of it.”
