‘I think we’re all affected by it,’ she said. ‘I still have my father there and my grandparents, a lot of friends, it’s a very tough subject to talk about. It’s so difficult.’

She added: ‘I’m in touch with them and I help as much as I can. I couldn’t get my father and my grandmother anywhere close to me but they’re there and they’re safe at the moment so as soon as I will get the chance to get them I’ll do that.
