Strictly Come Dancing star Pixie Lott ditched her ballroom shoes for the day as she surprised unexpected shoppers with an acoustic performance.

Yesterday (2 October), Pixie was dazzling the crowd with her vocals instead of her fancy footwork as she was back to the day job.

Taking time out from her Strictly rehearsals, Pixie headed to Kingston to jump out of a vending machine (as you do) and sing for shoppers in the middle of the high street as part of the 'Nectar Thank You' campaign.

Back to doing what she does best, Pixie sang an acoustic version of her new single 'Break Up Song' - which features her actual boyfriend Oliver Cheshire in the music video!

Speaking on Lorraine earlier this week (30 September), Pixie revealed she wanted to use Oliver in the video to make it seem believable.

She said: "I really wanted to do a video where you see the emotion and people can relate to it. I thought the only way I could do that and get it the most real was to do it with my boyfriend."

In the clip, Pixie and Oliver are seen arguing as the pair end their relationship, but getting a little too into character Pixie revealed that her onscreen break-up actually made her burst into tears as she thought it was real.

Oh, Pixie!

When she's not busy concentrating on her new music (and playing impromptu gigs!), Pixie is focusing all her attention on this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The singer performed her first live dance with partner Trent Whiddon last weekend and wowed the judges with her impressive jive.

Since then, the blonde bombshell has been busy in rehearsals practicing her next dance ahead of this weekend's first elimination - and it looks like Pixie might be starting to feel the nerves.

Sharing a snap of herself and Trent on Instagram, Pixie can be seen beginning to panic! She said: "Reaching for the panic button before Saturday @trentwhiddon @bbcstrictly ahhhh."

But, helping to take her mind off Saturday's show, Pixie turned teacher and showed Trent the ropes when it comes to showcasing his vocals...

And it seems the dance professional even joined Pixie on stage for a little duet.

In another photo, Pixie and Trent are seen taking to the mic. Alongside her photo, Pixie said: "@TrentWhiddon has a beautiful voice, a lil impromptu duet - can't wait to do it again yesss!"

Who knew he could dance and sing?!
