SINGER-SONGWRITER Paloma Faith performed at the SSE Hydro as part of her UK-wide arena tour, and during the gig shared her support for the SNP and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Faith, who is from England, delivered a set heavy with political themes, and spoke about politics north of the Border.

During the gig, she said: “I'm happier the further north of the UK I go. I'm always happy in Glasgow."

She added: “I said something a bit divisive in Aberdeen last night – and I don’t know if I should say it to you guys, but I will. I love Nicola Sturgeon.”

The audience responded with whoops and cheers, with Faith looking surprised by the reaction. She then said: “I’d vote SNP in England if I could.”

Faith's performance at the Hydro received plenty of credit for the music too, with songs touching on issues such as Brexit.

Users on social media were also quick to offer praise for Faith.
