Lily Allen has confirmed the disappointing news that her music has been taken off the upcoming Bridget Jones West End musical. It would seem that the author of the popular books, Helen Fielding, has decided to go in a different direction in relation to the musical.
The singer was speaking to The Sun when she said: “I wrote some great music for it but Helen Fielding wants to go back and write a whole new story. It’s been a long-term project and I was happy to do my bit but I’m now out of the picture.”
The musical has been in the pipeline since 2011 and it has been said actress Sheridan Smith may be the on-stage Bridget Jones, as she has previously played the quirky character in a workshop production of the musical.
We’re actually disappointed by this story – don’t you think Lily’s music would be perfect for a Bridget Jones musical. Or movie…hmm! Who knows what the future holds!
