The former I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star took to the Loose Women stage on Tuesday to give her first live performance of the song from her album Flawed, which she has been working on since taking part in Comic Relief Does Fame Academy five years ago.
But despite her hard work, it looks as though her singing abilities failed to impress.
Viewers took to Twitter to criticise the 40-year-old’s abilities as a pop star, with one user writing: 'Tara palmer Tomkinson is on Loose Women....SINGING. Not as a joke or part of an interview....as an ACT. Butchering of the ears (sic)'
Another tweeted: 'Omg Tara Palmer Tomkinson on Loose women signing...worse thing I've ever seen and heard in my life. #embarrasedforher #cringinell (sic)'
The ‘It girl’ wore an orange bodycon dress as she took to the stage, playing the keyboard as she performed.
Tara has been reported as saying: "I sing and play piano and it's all me in there. I couldn't write an autobiography.
"This is my autobiography. I'm proud of it. It sounds quite like Dido."
The star has checked into rehab on several occasions in the past to battle her drug addiction and has recently admitted that she is trying her hardest to calm down.
She said: 'I have to say I’ve been trying really hard to be calm. Over the past four or five months I’ve tried so hard because I just want to be.
‘It’s very important what people think of me because I’ve tried very hard to change and it’s been a very, very big battle.’
