Dannii tipped for new BBC acting role
Following her older sister’s festive appearance in Doctor Who, rumours are circling that Dannii Minogue is to take a leading role in a new TV show.
According to the Sun, the Australian singer is to play a part alongside John Barrowman in Torchwood, the hit spin-off series of Doctor Who.
“I’d love it if Dannii appeared in Torchwood. She has an edge and I know she’s a fan of the show,” the actor, who plays Captain Jack on the show, told the paper.
Should she land the part, it is expected that she will appear in several episodes, unlike sister Kylie who met a dramatic death after saving the Doctor’s life.
The news comes on the back of a successful Christmas season for Dannii.
Just days after his victory on the X-Factor, her young protégé Leon Jackson has topped the charts with his debut single, while runner-up Rhydian has also managed to secure a lucrative record deal.
Kylie’s guest appearance on Doctor Who saw the show attract 12.2 million Christmas Day viewers, equivalent to around half of the total TV audience.
