Sophie to Follow Mother’s Footsteps?

Pop star Sophie Ellis-Bextor – best known for her unique facial features, her hit “Murder on the Dance Floor” and being the daughter of former Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis – has revealed that she would like to play a monster in Doctor Who.

On her Twitter account @SophieEB earlier today, the striking brunette (and sometimes blonde) commented:

“Ambition thought of the day: I would love to play an alien on Dr Who. No prosthetics required!”

If she were to appear in the series, Sophie would complete an interesting double. Her mother Janet appeared in 1979’s The Horns of Nimon as Teka opposite Doctor Who legend Tom Baker. Additionally, Ellis also presented the BBC children’s series Jigsaw, on which one Sylvester McCoy was a regular face!

Obviously Ellis-Bextor has tweeted what countless celebrities and out of work performers dream about – a chance to re-ignite their careers with a stint on a popular Saturday evening TV show.

Whether she’s successful or not is a matter for a group of people in Wales…
