She said: ‘I haven’t really talked about it that much. I saw someone I need. She needed help and I’d definitely go and do the same thing again.’

The attack took place before Christmas when Katherine was on her way to perform at a charity concert with the singer recently admitting she has forgiven the mugger due to her Christian faith.

Katherine said she was apprehensive to discover her husband Andrew Levitas’ opinion on her bold act, but was relieved when he told her: ‘I’m proud of you’.

Just hours after the mugging, the Angel hitmaker performed at the Henry van Straubenzee charity carol concert at St Luke’s Church.

On why she decided to take to the stage, she told Stella magazine: ‘I was shaken up initially. But my instinct is always to keep going, so I got out there. It was a charity. I didn’t want to let them down.’

Katherine said: ‘I haven’t really talked about it that much. I saw someone I need. She needed help and I’d definitely go and do the same thing again’ 

She said: ‘I’m so in awe of the work the NHS are doing and I sat here thinking “how can I do my bit?” It was for people who are lonely or are maybe self-isolating by themselves, just to keep them company really. 

‘Keep things cheery and get others involved. We had no idea so many people were going to watch it, it’s become something fun for me. 

‘What’s been lovely is that you’ve seen people linking up with their friends in other parts of the world watching it. 

‘Normally I’d be performing with an orchestra or a piano but I’m somehow managing to play the backing tracks and keep the thing working. It’s so important we honour the amazing work of the NHS.’

‘Hopefully this is a way to reach out to people on a Saturday night. I’ll do it again this Saturday.’
