Kylie Minogue chooses comedy role
Pop superstar Kylie Minogue will star in a one-off dark comedy on British TV as she steps away from music to focus on acting.

A representative for the Spinning Around hitmaker announced earlier this month that Minogue will be "taking a bit of a break" from the charts to return to her first love of acting.
The decision comes as she parts way with her manager of 25 years, Terry Blamey, and she has now filmed a quirky new project for Sky's Playhouse Presents series.
She will star in Hey Diddle Dee, a comedy based on pop artist Andy Warhol, which is directed by Marc Warren.
Minogue says: "When the script was sent to me, I knew instinctively I wanted to be part of this project. Marc has created a beautiful, quirky story."
Idris Elba, Anna Friel and Matt Smith will also appear in episodes of Playhouse Presents.
