Teenage singer Charlotte Church has insisted that "everything was gravy" with her private life as she made a second attempt to leave the UK for her US tour, after postponing a flight earlier this week.
Charlotte, 16, was due to fly out of Britain on Wednesday ahead of her first performance in Cincinnati later this week but left London's Gatwick Airport shortly before her plane departed.
On Saturday she returned to Gatwick with her mother Maria and members of her management and said that she was looking forward to beginning the tour, which is due to last three weeks.
Wearing a smart black winter coat with fur collar, Charlotte told waiting reporters: "Yes, I am looking forward to it, it is gonna be great."
Her second attempt to fly out for the tour followed reports earlier this week in some newspapers that she had had a bust-up with her DJ boyfriend Steven Johnson, and had refused to board a plane until the differences had been sorted out.
However a statement from her management, azoffmusic, earlier this week said the star had not departed because she was suffering from flu and an ear infection.
Charlotte said that she was feeling better and when asked if the "problems" at home had been resolved, she replied:
"Everything's gravy, thanks very much."
