The mum-of-one shared the news on Instagram, alongside a photograph of herself with two of her backing dancers.

"While I was still pregnant, I received a booking to perform at a gig. It was touch and go as to whether or not I would do it because it would be so soon after giving birth," Fleur explained.

"But this weekend, three weeks after having Nova, I decided I was ready to get back on stage and see how I get on."

Fleur, who gave birth to her baby on the living room floor, went on to admit her body "doesn't feel the same" but eventually the "energy took over" and she "felt amazing" up on stage.

The star continued: "I was anxious being without our baby girl for a bit and my body definitely doesn’t feel the same, but surprisingly the energy took over.

"It felt amazing to perform with these incredible ladies who gave me good, positive vibes on stage. I was able to get out there, move my body, sing and do what I love and then get back to the little person I love with all my heart."
