Multi-tasking Myleene 'focused'

Myleene Klass is working on a new classical album

Mother-of-two Myleene Klass says balancing domestic duties with recording her new album has helped make her more "focused".

The former Hear'Say star was divorced earlier this year after her 18-month marriage to security consultant Graham Quinn ended.

Speaking at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards in central London, she said it was "exciting" to be back in the studio where she is working on an album of classical versions of Andrew Lloyd Webber tracks.

She said: "It's a little trickier these days because now that I have a five-year-old and a two-year-old they both want to get involved in the piano practice hours so I usually practise with one in my lap and one taking the treble notes but we find a way around it and it makes me very, very focused.

"They're coming to the studio with me on Sunday. The studio's in Wiltshire so they can sort of run around the fields and and have a great time. It's very different to when I was recording pop songs, put it that way.

"Beforehand I'd sit around with the band in the studio and not a care in the world and now I've got to get everything done by teatime and bathtime but it keeps you focused."
