Manchester wowed by a whole Lott-a talent as pop star Pixie launches new single

Pop star Pixie Lott was accompanied by her fiancé supermodel Oliver Cheshire last night as she performed at Manchester’s newest celebrity haunt Mahiki.

Promoting her new single, “Won’t Forget You”, the 26-year-old stunned in a figure-hugging embroidered mini dress and multi-coloured heeled boots.

With three years since the release of her last album, the Mama Do star is back with another upbeat floor filler, featuring dancehall artist, Stylo G and hints there’s another album on the way.

Mahiki, on Central Street, which is co-owned by footie icon, Gary Neville, was packed out with fans anxiously waiting their turn to take selfies with the blonde bombshell.

A self-confessed Manchester lover, the Bromley-born star said: “I wanted to come up north – I love it here.”

The singer said she felt honoured to be part of the We Are Manchester benefit gig on September 9, in memory of those who died in the terror attack in May.

“It’s such an emotional thing when you’re actually there. When you’re on the stage it hits you so much harder than you can imagine. I was tearing up.

“Mancunian people are so welcoming and friendly and the crowd was amazing. When they chant that special Manchester chant, you feel part of it,” said the singer.

Recently engaged to long-term partner, Dolce and Gabbana model Oliver, the couple are planning to get married next summer.

“I’m thinking about colours and dresses.

“The hardest thing is the guest list and the venue. My mum and my sister want to be involved – my mum did my sister’s whole wedding,” said Pixie.

The pair met at a Vivienne Westwood party during London Fashion Week seven years ago.

“We got introduced by a mutual friend – we spoke for the tiniest amount of time, then we exchanged BBM messages,” Lott revealed.

“Then, we were in New York at the same time, so we met up. I remember I was on tour with Rihanna and he came to see one of the shows and after that we started to see each other a little bit more frequently.”

When asked who would be her ideal artist to collaborate with, the pop beauty said without hesitation – Eminem.

“I’ve actually got a chorus that I wrote that I love, so I’m just going to send it to him,” she joked.

From show-stopping performances on Strictly Come Dancing – she’s rooting for Mollie King and Aston Merrygold this year – to playing Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s and coaching Jess Folley, this year’s winner of the Voice Kids UK – it’s been a busy three years for the Cry Me Out star.

It seems that Pixie has a Lott of talent and won’t be stopping any time soon.
