Soul singer Joss Stone has described to a court today how her home in Devon had been an "open house" for family.
Two men are facing trial charged with conspiring to rob and murder her.
Kevin Liverpool, 35, and Junior Bradshaw, 32, were arrested near her home in 2011.
Both deny all charges against them.
Stone told the court that the day of the alleged incident started out as a normal day, until the police turned up to tell her someone was trying to kidnap and kill her.
