Katherine Jenkins is obsessed with Christmas.

The sexy soprano starts getting ready for the festive season in the summer because she gets so excited about it so is always prepared by the time the big day comes.

Katherine admitted : ''It's been Christmas for me since June. I've been in the Christmas spirit literally since the summer. I'm going top be so ready by the time it gets here!''

The 32-year-old singer admitted that December is often her busiest time of year and she is likely to be performing several gigs.

The Welsh beauty is releasing her very first album of festive tunes this year, 'This Is Christmas', which includes timeless classics like 'Away In A Manger', 'Hark The Herald Angels Sing', 'Deck The Halls' and hopes fans enjoy it as much as she does.

She commented: ''These holiday songs bring back such wonderful memories for me of times spent with family and loved ones. I have always hoped that one day I'd have the opportunity to record a Christmas album and I can't wait to share my interpretations of these songs with everyone.''
