Welsh opera star KATHERINE JENKINS was left stunned on Friday (01Jun12) after her former DANCING WITH THE STARS partner MARK BALLAS jetted to London for a surprise visit.
The blonde beauty and professional dancer Ballas came second in the finale of the TV show last month (May12), and she has since returned to her native U.K. to prepare for a performance in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee.
The pair has remained good friends since the competition wrapped and Ballas decided to fly from America to give Jenkins some moral support for the weekend (02Jun12) gig.
An amazed Jenkins writes on Twitter.com, "Shocked @MarkBallas has flown all the way 2London 2surprise me (sic)! Cant tell whether its me or Her Majesty he wants 2c (to see) but either way I'm happy!"
Jenkins will sing for the Queen on Saturday at the Investec Derby Day at Epsom Downs Racecourse in Surrey, south east England.
Both stars have dismissed ongoing reports they are secretly dating.
