In 2011, her version was used in a Christmas commercial for the John Lewis department store chain. She told the Telegraph, “I haven’t been spat at by Smiths fans in the street…I’ve had a few people being furious at me on Twitter, saying, ‘How dare you?’ But I haven’t done anything to the original. I think you’ll find it still exists.”

In the interview with Hunger TV, she talks about her decision to pursue her musical aspirations. “Music has always been really, really important to me. And kind of my biggest passion,” she said.

“And writing is something I’ve always done. it’s just the idea of actually doing it for my job…didn’t occur to me until later than acting,” she continued.
