Jason Donovan returns to music
Jason Donovan is swapping the sequins for the studio as he prepares to release a new album.
The Australian actor, who came third in this year's Strictly Come Dancing, will start work on his sixth as-yet-untitled record.
"It feels great to be going back in the studio," he said.
"I know exactly how I want the new album to sound and I'm as excited as I've ever been about a record."
Jason - who started off in Australian soap Neighbours before treading the stage boards in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Rocky Horror Show and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - will have to fit his music work in between the Strictly Come Dancing Live tour dates, which start on January 20 at Birmingham National Indoor Arena.
He has notched up four UK number one's, including his duet with Neighbours co-star Kylie Minogue, Especially For You.
