Pixie Lott can’t disguise her excitement at returning to the V Festival this summer.

Both as a performer and a music fan, it’s an event she’s been to many times but this year’s festival will be particularly exciting for the Brentwood singer as she’ll be showcasing songs from her new album, as well as playing all her hits.

Having grown up in Brentwood, Pixie, 23, says playing at the V Festival in Chelmsford feels like a home gig and she’s looking forward to another fun-packed weekend at Hylands Park.

“Yeah, I love it. V is my favourite festival to perform at and go to. I’ve been every year since I was 15 or 16. My family still live in Brentwood, so my friends and family always come along to support me – and I can pop home if I want a shower!”

The last time Pixie performed at V was in 2012 but she was at Hylands again last year for Olly Murs’ concert in the park. This time round, she’ll be able to play fans some of the new songs she’s been working hard on.

“I can’t say that I’ll be performing all my new stuff but I’ll definitely do the singles,” she says. “And I’ll do what I always do at V and do a special medley of songs, cover versions, which always goes down well.”

Pixie says she’s particularly looking forward to sharing the stage with her band who’ve helped give her new material more of a soul sound. Last year, she revealed she was taking inspiration from her favourite Motown artists and she’s very pleased with the results with her latest single, Nasty, hitting the top 10 last month.

“It’s more mature, very soulful, it’s a style I really like,” she says of her third album, which is simply called ‘Pixie Lott’. “It’s all recorded, mixed and mastered, it’s just frustrating waiting for it to be released. I just want everyone to hear it now. It’s taken two years to write it and get it done, I just want to sing the songs to people.”

The album is due for release just after the V Festival in mid-August, so Pixie’s appearance at Hylands Park will be a great chance for her fans to her the new songs for the first time live. And for Pixie, it’ll be great to reconnect with her fans live as well as return to one of her favourite stomping grounds, Hylands Park.

“I remember the first time I went to V, I camped with my two best friends and thought it was the best thing ever. I still camp when I perform, it feels like a little holiday weekend. And it seems like V is lucky with the weather, it always seems to be sunny. It’s one of my favourite things about the summer.”

Does Pixie get the chance to get out and about when she’s performing at the V Festival?

“I love getting in among the crowd. I’ve played at the JB Arena, the 4Music Stage, the Main Stage, I’ve done them all. They all have a great buzz and everyone is really excited to be there, enjoying the sun and having a drink. It’s a really cool vibe.

“I always try to see the headliners. I’m a big Justin Timberlake fan so I can’t wait to see him and The Killers this year. In the past I remember seeing Kings Of Leon and one of my favourite memories is seeing MGT. I love the range of acts you get at the V Festival, indie, pop and dance.”

Pixie says it’s always good return to Essex and the V Festival is a good excuse to do that. She may be based in East London now, but she says she comes home to Brentwood regularly to see family and friends and she’s certainly noticed how her home town has changed in the last few years.

“It’s changed a lot since I lived there, because of Towie and all the shops they have there. I think it gets quite a lot of visitors now. It’s quite crazy, it’s a completely different place now. I think a lot of people who come to the bars and clubs are not Brentwood people, but it’s good that people are coming to the town.”

Pixie Lott will be performing at the V Festival at Hylands Park, Chelmsford, over the weekend of August 16-17. For tickets and more information, go to www.vfestival.com

Pixie Lott always forgets to remove her make-up.

The singer – who is dating model Oliver Cheshire – insists that she’s awful at washing her cosmetics off her face at the end of the night and often wakes up to find ”crusty” bits of her eye make-up dried up on her skin.

She said: “I often sleep in my make-up and wake up with crusty mascara over my face.”

However, when she’s getting ready for a night out she doesn’t spend hours in front of the mirror perfecting her look.

Pixie explained: “I’m quite good at not spending too long [getting ready for a night out]. If I only have five minutes, I’ll quickly spritz some Batiste Dry Shampoo to add volume, apply some cream blusher and do a quick eyeliner flick. Mind you, I am always late for everything. It’s one of my worst habits.”

The blonde beauty also admits she’s not used fake tan since she was 15, but is lucky that she tans well naturally when she’s able to soak up the sunshine.

She explained to heat magazine: “I haven’t fake tanned since I was 15, as I tan quite well naturally. In fact, my record label had a go at me when I was on holiday last year, as I had to shoot my new album cover when I got back and they didn’t want me looking too tanned.”
