    Albert 'Bertie' McIntosh, who was born in 1998, has also appeared in Kate's music.

    Appearing on stage at the Hammerstein Apollo in London, Kate praised Bertie for being the inspiration for her later work.

    She told the audience: "Without my son Bertie, this would never have happened.

    "Without his encouragement and enthusiasm, particularly in the early stages when I was very frightened to commit to pushing the 'go' button, I'm sure I would have backed out.

    "Throughout he has been my chief consultant, my editor, my confidant. In order for him to be part of this, which has always been part of the deal, he has had to work really hard in order to keep his school commitments as well as his commitments to the show."
