Soul singer Duffy is to be reunited with her mum over Christmas - the star's been so busy with work she's not seen her for six months.
The Mercy hitmaker has spent much of the year (10) working on new album Endlessly and promoting the record, which was released in the U.K. last month (Nov10) - but she's preparing to head home to her native Wales for the festive season - and Duffy can't wait to see her mother Joyce again.
She says, "I shall be in north Wales, going to see my mum. I was just saying earlier I've not seen her in six months, so she'll get a squeeze."
