Adil revealed, “She has had such difficult times in the past 12 months and it has been so difficult for her. But being in the studio with her during that time is really inspiring.

“I am absolutely certain that when she goes home it must be difficult and that she must have moments of utter despair. But life has to go on and it has to go forward or it is defeatist. “
