Back with new solo LP Euphoria, she said: “It’s a world I haven’t delved too deeply into yet, it’s quite scary.

“But any kind of intelligence would be helpful, especially when you’re going through the menopause, help with the brain fog would be great! I know you can write songs but how does it get around the ‘seven consecutive note rule’ so it doesn’t rip off another song? Then you’d get sued.”

AI was not used on Euphoria, which is a banging collection of covers by her all-time favourite singers.

Claire explained: “It all started from a conversation about where my voice came from. When I first started I was very proper, a bit like Julie Andrews and more musical theatre.

“Listening to these amazing vocalists influenced my tastes and I started copying how they did things and somehow made the voice you have now which fits into the pop music world.

“It was really about celebrating those women and how I could attack those songs.”

And her fanbase might explode when they hear her joyous version of the Olivia Newton-John camp classic Xanadu.

She laughed: “That’s the one I’ve had the most messages about, so I really hope I’ve done it justice. It’s obviously one that means a lot to people especially now Olivia has passed away. I wanted to include it as a tribute.

“My version is more bouncy than the original.”
