One-time wild child Lily Allen has been hinting at what’s in the “pool of inspiration” she’s drawing from whilst making her new LP. And said pool, she says, is filled with nice, sedate things like “babies” and “nappies”. Not that she’s gone all ‘mumsy’ or anything and started watching kids’ TV; oh no, not Lily.

Talking to The Mirror whilst at the Ivor Novello Awards last week, Allen said: “Five years ago, what I really wanted to do was have kids and I’ve had two kids now. As much as I love that, I’m never going to be the type of person who sits at home all day playing with plastic toys and watching ‘Peppa Pig'”.

So what of the LP? And the ‘pool’? I want to hear about the pool. “I’m actually writing my third album at the moment. I went to a meeting yesterday. Went through a load of tracks and it’s shaping up pretty well. I wouldn’t say it’s been easy. It hasn’t been hard. It’s just been different because my pool of inspiration is so different to what it was nine or ten years ago”.

I’ll say.
