Jamelia and Sinitta were among the celebrities who turned out for the premiere of Disney's latest animated film The Princess And The Frog in London.

So Macho singer Sinitta revealed she has waited all her life to see a black princess star in a Disney film.

Sinitta said: "It's very, very exciting - apart from being a huge Disney fan anyway, I'm excited as a black woman that we now have the first African-American Disney princess - I've waited 41 years for that."

She added: "I've brought my babies with me - Magdalena and Zac who are three and four now. He's dressed like the frog, she's dressed like the princess Tiana, so everybody's happy."

Jamelia also told how important it was for her daughters to see a princess they could identify with.

She said: "For me it's just such a momentous occasion - the first black Disney princess.

"I mean obviously I've always been a fan of Disney and always will be but for my daughters in particular to have a Disney princess to identify with is just wonderful. I'm really, really excited - happy to be here and can't wait to see the film.

"My daughters are so excited. They're really, really happy ad they're really obsessed with Tiana the princess, my youngest daughter's name is Tiani so she just changes her name to Tiana as well."

Also at the family screening of the movie about a princess who is changed into a frog when she kisses a frog prince, were Stacey Solomon, Gail Porter and Gary and Danielle Lineker.
