“Summer is professionally full. We will steal a couple of days for a swim,” she said.

“My husband will not follow the tour, it is very difficult, he also has his own job. Missing the other person is good sometimes, but not for long,” the singer said initially.

“I still have the dress, but I can no longer fit in it, after the plastic surgery I did on my chest,” she said. “And I still have the Eurovision shoes.”
