Sugababes star Heidi Range got emotional while explaining a relationship she had with a late family member to Abbey Clancy.
On Thursday (12 October) Heidi, 40, appeared on the first episode of the ITVBe show – Abbey Clancy: Celebrity Homes.
The brand-new reality series sees the Liverpudlian being invited into the private homes of celebrities across the country.
Once behind the doors, Abbey, 37, is set to explore the various reasonings behind interior design decisions and get acquainted with a few famous faces’ treasured possessions.
In the first episode, the model headed to Heidi’s renovated London home and was introduced to an angel ornament sitting high on her bookshelf.

Giving the host a potted history on the angel, the Brit Award-winner explained: “Up here I’ve got a little angle – she was an ornament from my nan’s garden.
“My nan was like a second mother to me. And so that’s one of the things I got to keep of hers.”
Getting visibly upset, Heidi continued: “The day we moved in, the first box I opened an angel was in it. I put it up over there and said ‘She’s watching over the house’.”
In a piece-to-camera, the musician explained that she comes from a very “close family” who did everything together and always included their beloved nan in plans.

Heidi said her relative was somebody who “loved making people feel good about themselves” and also “loved seeing people happy”.
“I was incredibly lucky to have someone that special. I can’t talk about it without getting upset.”
Returning to the house tour with Abbey, the host herself began to cry before divulging her own feelings in a cut-away.
“You know, you see a pop star and you think they’re bold and confident,” the 37-year-old began.
“I don’t know, thick-skinned? But the more time I spent with her the more obvious [that] she is a very sentimental person.
“You know family was the most important thing to her,” she added.
Liverpool native Heidi first rose to fame in the late ‘90s when she joined Atomic Kitten alongside Kerry Katona and Liz McClarnon.
However, eight months after recording material with the girl group, she left to pursue a solo career and was ultimately replaced by Natasha Hamilton.
In 2001, she joined Sugababes on a new deal with Island Records. After replacing original member Siobhan Donaghy, Heidi went on to claim six UK number-one singles and two number-one records with the band.
After ten years at the helm and playing iconic slots at Glastonbury Festival and Barclaycard Wireless Festival, Hedi left the band after they began an indefinite hiatus.
Since exiting Sugababes, the 40-year-old has gone on to appear as a contestant on ITV’s Dancing On Ice and as a member of the UK jury for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest.
