Nadine set to release a second album

The Sun hit us with the news today that Nadine will release a second album, yay!

We have already seen a few articles stating this, but with this national newspaper now reporting about it, we can get even more excited about it.

Sources have suggested the record could feature a Girls Aloud reunion track after Nadine began working with Brian Higgins—the mastermind producer behind the band—on new material.

A source told The Sun’s Bizarre column: “Nadine has spent the last few years soul-searching and finally feels ready to have another crack at her solo career. She has been working with Brian and can’t wait to show people her material. There has even been talk of a Girls Aloud track on the album.”

Watch this space for more news, hopefully we get to hear a track soon!

[VIDEO] Interview with Nadine for Specsavers

Nadine Coyle first hit our screens as a young hopeful on the television talent show Popstars: The Rivals, where she won a place in Girls Aloud – the multi-platinum, multi-award-winning girl group with hits including Sound of the Underground and Something Kinda Oooh.

This year sees Nadine celebrate her 15th anniversary in the industry. She is currently in the studio with new music due to be released later this year. Nadine is also marking 2017 with an impassioned commitment as our new Spectacle Wearer of the Year ambassador. We stole the Derry-born beauty away for a quick chat during a fabulous photoshoot to promote the annual charity competition.

How long have you worn glasses? About a year. I started getting headaches while I was driving, and both my mum and my partner Jason (former American footballer and father to their daughter Anaiya, three) said that I should have my eyes tested.

How have you adapted to wearing glasses? I love it. I have always loved wearing sunglasses. so it feels very natural.

How do glasses fit with your lifestyle? Really easily. I like to have neutral tone glasses that can go with anything. Now when I leave the house, it’s keys, phone, purse, lip balm and glasses!

How would you describe your style? My style is classic but depending on what I am up to, I will add a touch of glamour for a night out. When I go through my wardrobe, I can see how much my style has changed and evolved over the years. I am now more aware of things that suit me rather than falling for the hottest new trend.

What are your top style tips? Wear what you feel comfortable in and what brings out your personal style. That way you will feel more confident.

How important is the charity element for you? It is so important! Kidscape is a fantastic charity and the fact that it receives £1 for each entry is just tremendous. Kidscape works tirelessly to help prevent bullying and I believe that all children should be able to grow up without fearing bullies or abuse.

How do you feel about being this year’s Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year ambassador? It’s such an honour, I am so proud! I attended last year’s event and received an award for Best Newcomer. It’s a great feel-good campaign and the awards evening is a spec-tacular, fun event!

“I was thrilled to win the newcomer award last year, so it’s a real honour to launch the search to find the 2017 Spectacle Wearer of the Year.”

Nadine heads to South Derbyshire for filming

14704967_1323533430992405_6641022537817915392_nBridget Jones actress Joanna Scanlan and Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle have been spotted in South Derbyshire as they got to work filming a new feature film in the town.

Pin Cushion is the first feature film by South Derbyshire’s own Deborah Hadfield and has led to some big-name stars heading to the town to take the starring roles.

It tells the tale of a mother and daughter whose relationship is put to the ultimate test when they move from the countryside to a town. The lead mother and daughter characters are played by Joanna Scanlan, of Bridget Jones’s Baby, Fungus the Bogyman and The Thick of it, and Lily Newmark, of TV series Emerald City, who will star in her first film role.

Other stars include Bruce Jones, John Henshaw, Nadine Coyle, Isy Suttie and Chanel Cresswell.

Producer Gavin Humphries told the Mail that the crew have been working in South Derbyshire for the last two months and only Bruce Jones, better known as Coronation Street’s Les Battersby, had drawn any attention.

He said: “It is the first feature for local writer Deborah Haywood but she has made a number of short films which were shot in and around Swadlincote. I met her around seven or eight years ago at Stars of Tomorrow for up and coming writers and directors and we have been working on ideas for this project since 2012.

“All of Deborah’s previous films have been shot in Swadlincote and she had the area in mind as an inspiration when writing the scripts. There is so much to making a feature film with lots of people, time and pressure so it is good to have something familiar to work with as a starting point.

“It is a slightly magical drama about a mother and daughter who move from the countryside to a town. They have a very close relationship but have never experienced the wider world so their relationship is put under a lot of strain.

“The daughter is a teenager so she is meeting others her own age and boys so their relationship is really tested. Joanna Scanlon is the mother and she is a really amazing actress and Lily Newmark was a model and is now an aspiring actress who has been working on a series for NBC.”

Mr Humphries said that they had found the Midlands was an ideal place to shoot a film as all of the actors and crew could get to the area easily from most places across the country.

He said: “Logistically it is incredibly convenient which is perfect. Actors appreciate great writing and a really exciting script and even the smaller characters are well written. They love to find something creative as it gives them more space to rehearse and create the characters.

“Filming has been absolutely fantastic. It is something that has involved a lot of different locations, people and elements and we have had an overwhelming response. We are having a great time and everyone has been very welcoming. We have been very lucky to have the Gresley Old Hall as a base.”

The film is supported by the British Film Institute and Dignity and it is hoped to be finished by spring next year.
