Katherine Jenkins has denied rumours that she is taking a break from her music career to start a family.

The Welsh songstress - who is engaged to fellow Welshman Gethin Jones - said she would never give up singing, even when she has a baby.

"I'm not giving up music. No, no. I did read that and I think it's something that gets more exaggerated the more it [goes around]," she said.

"When I do decide to have a family and settle down, I think it would be nicer to take some time off and enjoy motherhood rather than have this crazy lifestyle that I have now. But I'll always sing - even if it's not on this scale, I will still always be singing so I will not be giving the music up."

Katherine - who was promoting her new album Daydream at HMV in Manchester's Trafford Centre - said she would love the opportunity to act again, following her debut screen appearance on Doctor Who as Abigail Pettigrew.

"To do Doctor Who was amazing, and I'm so glad I got the opportunity. I'm glad I pushed myself, because I wasn't sure if I could do it to begin with," she continued.

"Now that I've done it, I really actually enjoyed myself so I think if it was the right project and a musical thing, I definitely would be open to it. I have Abigail to thank for that!"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
