I’ve added photos of Pixie from a photoshoot she did with Arnaldo Anaya-Lucca for her self-titled perfume that was never released officially. Watch the behind-the-scenes video of the shoot here.
The Vamps have collaborated with Pixie again on a new version of her single “Nasty” which will be out on iTunes on March 9th. Until then, listen to it below.
Pixie Lott has opened up on what it was like to film scenes for the BBC drama Inspector George Gently recently.
The singer made her acting debut on the popular crime show and admitted that she was incredibly nervous about taking part, even though she was just playing dead.
Pixie’s body is found on a beach, so she had no lines to deliver and just had to look like a convincing corpse, but even that made her sick with nerves she admitted.
She told The Sun that starring opposite Martin Shaw left her a bundle of nerves and the blonde beauty explained:
“(I was) really nervous. I started acting classes aged five, but I hadn’t done it for such a long time.”
Lott was freezing when she filmed her scene. She was playing dead on a cold beach and periodically staff would pour water over her, to make things look convincing.
She said: “We filmed that scene on a Northumbrian beach.
“It was a horrible wet day, but I still had to be watered down until I was soaked and lie on the damp sand.
“I was shivering so much I had to keep running inside for a blanket to try to warm up between takes.”
We are assuming that somewhere in the series Pixie will get to actually speak, as Inspector George Gently’s producer Matthew Bird revealed that she was cast for her singing and performing ability, as well as her stunning good looks.
“We were casting the second film of the new series of Inspector George Gently and were looking for someone to play Megan, an entertainer at the Blue Bird Holiday Camp in 1969. We were looking for an actress that could act, sing and dance and then I saw Pixie acting so brilliantly with Rowan Atkinson in their performance of Goodness Gracious Me (filmed for the NHS Organ Donation ‘From The Heart’ campaign). It was a brilliant remake of the classic Sixties song performed by Sophia Loren and Peter Sellers – and that was it!”
“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.”
The George Gently special will see Gently and Bacchus visiting a family holiday camp to investigate staff and holidaymakers, after the body of a pretty young singer is found on the beach nearby.
The colourful inmates of the holiday camp, from the flamboyant owner and his sister, to the chalet staff, talent acts, lifeguards and of course the holiday makers, throw the investigation sideways as Gently and Bacchus uncover a story of jealousy, ambition and the dark underbelly of the permissive society.
Earlier today, Pixie answered a bunch of questions via Twitcam. If you missed it (like me) or want to re-watch it, you can do so below.
Watch the video of Pixie performing her not-yet-released single “Nasty” on The Jonathan Ross Show which aired last night on ITV.
A new song, titled “Love ATM”, has been added to the database of BMI. It was written by Pixie Lott, Jarrad Rogers (Bright Lights) and Jonny Lattimer (Ellie Goulding – Starry Eyed) and is listed with Imagem Music as the publisher. It’s unknown if “Love ATM” will be on Pixie’s third album.
