It's only been a week since she announced her split from fiancé Gethin Jones
Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins broke down in tears on stage as she performed for the first time since announcing her split from ex-fiancé Gethin Jones.
The 31-year-old found herself overcome with emotion as she performed the first song of the evening at the New Oxford Theatre, where she kicked off her tour last night.
Jenkins struggled to contain her tears before turning her back on the audience to be comforted by the orchestra’s conductor.
On December 30 she revealed that she and Gethin, 33, were going their separate ways after four years together.
She wrote on Twitter: ‘Sorry for being quiet of late, its just that I have some very sad news. Geth & I have decided to go our separate ways.
‘We are both beyond broken hearted. All your hugs & support will be much appreciated xxx.’
Gethin then added on his own Twitter feed: ‘Hi everybody. I’m deeply sad to tell you that Kath and I have ended our relationship as a couple. We are both heart broken… Gx.’
Jones proposed to Jenkins on a holiday to Mexico last January but it’s thought that busy schedules prevented them from ever setting a wedding date.
