The Suffolk superstar, from Framlingham, attracted more than 140,000 people to four concerts in Ipswich over the bank holiday weekend.

Fans descended on Ipswich in their thousands, eager to see their favourite popstar perform.

The concerts were packed with special moments and surprises, each having its own slice of magic.

But now the crowds have cleared, and Chantry Park cleaned up and brought back to its former glory, we would like to look back and remember what a truly special event it was for the town.
