Heartbroken Jess Glynne opened up about her torment after her beloved grandmother died alone from Covid.

The singing star's nan was one of the thousands across the UK to lose their lives after contracting the deadly virus.

She died earlier this year and the Hold My Hand hitmaker has found the strength to discuss her tragic death after herself recovering from coronavirus after being struck down in the summer.

Jess' devastation was increased because her grandmother was on her own when she slipped away.

Covid restrictions meant friends and family could not be by her bedside and the star says the hurt that caused is hard to describe.

The mourning star, 31, told The Mirror : “It was pretty horrific. It’s been hard for my family.

"It is just dark, people not getting to say their goodbyes."

She added: "I'm really cautious in my movements because it is mad serious. You see people being irresponsible and you can't be.


"The staff who looked after my nan have been incredible. You aren't allowed to see anyone and she was alone."

Now she is doing something to say thank you.

Jess is using her first Christmas single, a cover of Donny Hathaway’s This Christmas, to raise money for the charity that brilliantly helped care for her nan, Jewish Care.

"When Nan was at home they looked after her and they have been incredible," the singer said as she discussed why she put the record together.

"They do everything. They are the biggest amazing support that my family and my nan needed.

“I had never pictured myself doing a Christmas song. With the video I felt a bit of escapism was needed, to be a bit light-hearted in the darkness.”

Jess says the trauma of losing a loved one means she is sticking very closely to the Covid rules.
