This wasn’t Lott’s last television appearance though; she appeared on Strictly Come Dancing a year later. Despite being the highest scoring contestant of the series, she was knocked out in the quarter-finals.
Lott also swapped the screen for the stage when she played Manhattan good-time girl Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s – a role made famous by Audrey Hepburn.
