Pixie Lott to star in BBC detective drama

Pixie Lott is set to make her television acting debut in a BBC drama.

The singer will feature alongside Martin Shaw in BBC One's Inspector George Gently, which is set in the 1960s.

Lott will play the role of Megan, who is an entertainer at the Blue Bird Holiday Camp, with filming taking place from April.

Speaking about the news, the singer said: "I love the fact that Inspector George Gently is a period drama set in the '60s and I can't wait to play the role of Megan. It will be great to be filming in the North East, and getting to play a role that gives me a real feel for the period."

Series producer Matthew Bird added: "Pixie was very excited about joining the cast and we are delighted that Pixie is to make her TV acting debut in Inspector George Gently - we know she will bring something very special to the role."
