Katherine Jenkins insists she is staying put in UK

Wednesday May 30, 2012

Katherine Jenkins has insisted that she has no plans to move to the US - despite shooting to fame Stateside on Dancing With The Stars.

The Welsh opera singer came second in the American version of Strictly Come Dancing.

But speaking at the Glamour Awards, where she showed off her slender figure in a strapless, multi-coloured dress, Katherine said she was staying put.

"The UK will always be my home. I'll welcome opportunities to go there for work but my friends and family are here," she said.

Katherine, who split up with TV presenter Gethin Jones last year, said: "I was thrilled to come second on the show. Especially as I'm not American and nobody knew me there.

"But I felt incredibly welcome. It was an amazing experience."

Of her future plans, Katherine said: "I've had lots of offers since the show but I'm concentrating on the music."
