Pixie Lott is taking a sidestep from the charts into the musical theatre business next summer, when she'll be appearing as Holly Golightly in a production of Breakfast at Tiffany's.

The show is a co-production with Leicester's Curve Theatre and will see Truman Capote's famous book adapted for the stage by Tony-winning playwright Richard Greenberg. It'll contain original music as well as well-known songs from the era.

The show will debut in Leicester in March 2016 before coming to Dublin's Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from June 13th - 18th 2016.

It'll mark Lott's first performance acting in a theatre play, but she's not daunted by the fact, saying that she was "so excited" to take on the role. "I absolutely love Holly’s style, and free spirit; she has always been an icon to me and I can't wait to bring my own personality to the role," she said. "Alongside music, I've always wanted to be in a play, and getting the opportunity to be in one of my all time favourites and play this fabulous character is a dream come true."

Her last studio album was 2014's 'Pixie Lott', and she also appeared on last year's series of Strictly Come Dancing.
