‘You can achieve so much in your job, making loads of money running a company, being Miss Impressive, but if having a family is your thing, everything else pales in comparison.’
The soul songstress appeared on ITV’s The Masked Singer while pregnant, disguised as a sausage.
She fended off competition from JLS star Aston Merrygold, who was disguised as Robin, and American singer Ne-Yo, who appeared as Badger – to take the crown.
Joss rose to fame back in late 2003 with her multi-platinum debut album, The Soul Sessions.
She confirmed that while she loves motherhood, she still loves her job too, sharing: ‘I’m the same person and it doesn’t stop me from doing things because I love my job and if I’m not being creative I can get a little bit moody.’

She said: ‘I’m a very forward-thinking type of gal and plan everything 10 years in advance so I’ve been looking for houses in Devon’
‘I want to take Violet to school and then maybe write a song in the day or do a cooking show and then pick her up and make dinner. ‘
‘I want to put my apron on and make Sunday roasts for my family with my husband there,’ she concluded.
