Kylie Minogue

Sky Arts has cast Kylie Minogue in its new TV series ‘Hey Diddly Dee’, actor/director Marc Warren’s comic drama about Andy Warhol’s famed artistic circle.

Ms Minogue – who, having just parted ways with her manager Terry Blamey, is apparently scaling back her pop obligations in favour of acting – says this of the new Sky show: “When the script was sent to me, I read it and knew instinctively I wanted to be part of this project. In ‘Hey Diddly Dee’, Marc has created a beautiful and quirky story”.

‘Hey Diddly Dee’ will air on Sky Arts 1 HD in March as part of its ‘Playhouse Presents’ strand, and also stars Idris Elba, Anna Friel and Julia Davis.
