IT may have been the final date of her Always In Between tour, but Jess Glynne made sure the run of concerts ended with a bang at the BIC.

With one of the most unique voices in music – I could have listened to her all night – she effortlessly belted out a string of hits, including I’ll Be There; Hold My Hand and Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself, as well as some lesser known tracks.

It was a largely upbeat evening, with a couple of ballads thrown in for good measure, but a great time was had by all.

The packed audience was made up of fans of all ages, showing the likeable star really does have universal appeal.

And her words of wisdom about learning to love yourself as she introduced her latest hit, Thursday, showed just why she is such a great role model for her younger followers.

A bright white stage set contrasted brilliantly with the ever-changing, digital backdrop, while Glynne showed off her own quirky style with a series of colourful costume changes.

However the highlight of the night has to be the moment she appeared, out of nowhere, at the back of the venue for a couple of more intimate numbers, accompanied by a pianist and a grand piano.

Having grown up visiting her Nan in Bournemouth, the town clearly has a special place in her heart – let’s hope it won’t be too long before she returns.
