She told followers on Twitter: "To say I'm overwhelmed by all the cards, flowers and good wishes I have received from across the country for my (ahem) 50th birthday, would be an understatement...

"So I just wanted to pop on here briefly (before hopefully staying away for the rest of the day!) to say thank you."
