Full credit to Michelle McManus - she's happy to put in the effort to try and find something, anything, which might extend her career. Okay, she doesn't actually have a "career" as such, and it's "restart" more than "extend", but still, you've got to admire her pluck.
She's now decided to have a crack at a dance record.
Or, at least, a popstar-made-by-ITV's idea of a dance album. She's not gone Aphex Twin on us:
"I kind of wanted to pay homage to that whole Friday night going out with the girls thing, so the album is very Eighties electro. It's my favourite genre of music, The Eighties."
We're not quite sure how you'd hear a Girls Aloud track and think "I know, I'll make a track inspired by Afrika Bambaataa, but then if you think that "the Eighties" is a genre of music (with its leading lights Run DMC, Sheena Easton and the Bhundu Boys, of course) anything is possible.
