SHE’S a triple threat as they say in showbusiness.

Singing, acting, dancing – Pixie Lott excels at all three.

For now, she’s not the songwriting, award-winning, chart topping pop star with three top 10 albums and three number one singles to her name.

Nor is she the former Strictly Come Dancing star who impressed judges with her moves under the glitter ball in 2014.

The 25-year-old All About Tonight singer is concentrating on her acting, appearing in the world premiere tour of Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

The new play with music opens on the south coast today at the Mayflower Theatre for a week-long run, and Pixie is loving taking on the role of Holly Golightly.

“There are quite a few similarities. When I read the book, Holly’s got blonde hair, she’s short-sighted and forgetful, just like me. She lives at flat number two and so do I. There are lots of things that keep cropping up.”

This new stage version is based on Truman Capote’s original novella rather than the famed Hollywood screen version, which gave Audrey Hepburn her defining role and turned her into an icon as Holly.

Despite being a fan of the film, Pixie admits she’s avoided it since agreeing to take on the role.

“I didn’t watch the film again as I didn’t want to copy anything and I didn’t want to be compared to Audrey.

“It’s a serious play and it’s not like the movie. But it’s really fun, I’m really getting into it. It’s a dream role for me really, I feel so lucky and I’ve learnt a lot from it.”
