Pixie Lott has landed the leading role in an upcoming West End production of Breakfast at Tiffany's.

The songstress has been cast as Holly Golightly, the iconic character made famous by Audrey Hepburn in the 1961 film adaptation of Truman Capote's hit novel, that tells the story of a New York City party girl who lives alone with her cat, who is named 'Cat'.

Confirming the exciting news, Pixie posted a picture of herself posing outside the Theatre Royal in London. Wearing head-to-toe Dior, the Strictly star channeled old Hollywood glamour as she got to know her four-legged co-star.
