I am a huge fan of Demi and her devil-may-care attitude – this really shone through on the stage, which she commanded with a real pop superstar presence.

Her stunning vocals surprised my guests, who hadn’t seen her live or heard many of her hits before – despite me blaring them out in my bedroom as a teenager.

There were young and old in the audience and all of us cheered her on as she performed, Sorry not Sorry, Cool for the summer and Heart Attack.

But it was when we heard the first few notes of her hit song Tell Me You Love Me the whole crowd went wild.

Demi’s dominating voice suits an outdoor venue like Newmarket well, and we were lucky enough to have brilliant weather.

It was spine-tinglingly, breath-takingly brilliant and it’s that kind of musical magic has made me jump at the chance to watch her live again soon.
