Diana Ross back in Britain
Diana Ross is back in Britain following her caution for alleged assault
Motown legend Diana Ross has flown back to Britain, and given her first live interview in the country since her arrest at Heathrow Airport last month.
Three weeks ago, Ross left under a cloud after she was released by police with a caution over an alleged assault on a security officer at the airport.
The 55-year-old singer hardly touched on the subject of last month's incident, except to tell listeners that she had always been treated well in the UK, where she had lots of fans.
Asked how she balanced family life and an international career, Ross said:
"My children come first and the career comes in around that."
She then added: "It's about having really a lot of simple abundance, and looking at the beauty in your life."
Ross is believed to have flown into Farnborough Airport on a private jet from Geneva.
She is here for a series of promotional events, including an interview with BBC Radio Two's Steve Wright and a Top Of The Pops recording.
Her major commitment is to film an ITV special called An Audience With Diana Ross, for transmission later this year.
Among those who will be in the studio for the LWT show are the All Saints, Catatonia's Cerys Matthews and soap stars from EastEnders and Coronation Street.
