"I had no idea I made her cry," she added. "I was lost in my performance and totally unaware of my surroundings. I feel honoured that my performance touched her so much. I hope people are crying tears of happiness!"

Henderson also praised fellow contestant Lucy Spraggan, describing 'Tea and Toast' as "so beautifully written and very sad".

She concluded: "I just want to say a big thank you. All the online supporters have really boosted my confidence and have inspired me to be the best musician I can be."
