Nicki Minaj shot video in Dungeness

Nicki Minaj has been filming a music video in the UK

Nicki Minaj has swapped Hawaii for Dungeness to film her latest music video.

The US star, 29, shot her last video, for her hit Starships, on Hawaii's sunny Oahu Island.

But the Daily Mirror reported that she'd spent the last four days around the frozen headland on the coast of Kent, near Dungeness nuclear power plant.

A source told the newspaper: "Typically, this weekend was one of the coldest of the year, which didn't make for ideal shooting conditions.

"Poor Nicki was huddled up and shivering between takes but gamely got on with it all. She was warming up between takes with endless cups of English tea."

The source said the special effects team would be "pooling all their resources" on the video, which would "remove the power station from certain beach shots".

"At one stage during filming on Sunday one of the crew trucks got stuck in the flooded gravel pits, and along with about 10 others, Nicki was roped in to help heave it out. It wasn't glamorous or pretty," the source added.
