She said: “My favourite wig is the one I’m wearing on the cover of my book ‘Songteller’. It’s probably the most famous.

She said: “Of course, I don’t always go out in rhinestones and earrings. But I like putting on a little make-up every day.
“At home I don’t want to look like a slouch for my husband, Carl Dean, who doesn’t get to see me that much. I wear the wigs, but I also like pulling my hair up in a scrunchie.
“And I put on make-up because I never know who’s going to show up at the door.”
