Opting for simple jewellery she slipped her feet into a pair of towering black patent platform heels.  

The ceremony pays tribute to the U.K. and European songwriters and publishers of the previous year’s most-performed songs on U.S. radio and television from BMI’s repertoire.

She shares her toddler, 16 months, with her Eton and Oxford-educated art dealer husband Caspar Jopling, 30, and she says he helps to calm the frantic states which have ‘dictated quite a lot of my life and career’.

Ellie’s anxiety ramped up when she became a mother and she says it’s been made more ‘intense’ by ‘the current climate and what’s going on in the world’. 

She explained to the Mirror: ‘My anxiety just went off the chart. It felt like it reached new heights of panic and fear.

‘If you haven’t had a panic attack, it’s so hard to describe and explain but it’s just so overwhelming…

‘It’s some kind of survival mechanism to you and your kid. You want to survive as much as possible for them and you also want them to survive, so you’re kind of fighting for both of you. It’s a lot.

She added that giving her son ‘cuddles and hanging out with him’ eases her troubles, saying the joy her offspring brings her is ‘off the chart’.
