Who is Pixie Lott?

Born in Bromley, Pixie Lott started out her singing career as a MySpace sensation for teenage girls, before going onto release two number one singles – Mama Do and Boys and Girls – in 2009 and a debut album Turn it Up, which reached the Top 10. In total she has three top 10 albums and three number one singles.

Pixie Lott joined the cast of Inspector George Gently in 2013, starring alongside Martin Shaw and Lee Ingleby as a holiday camp entertainer in the sixties detective drama.

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.
