Love Actually beauty Martine McCutcheon has enrolled the operatic skills of Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli to help launch her pop comeback.

The former EASTENDERS soap actress had a string of top ten hits in 1999-2000, including a number one single PERFECT MOMENT.

Despite relative success with her debut disc YOU ME AND US, the Londoner's follow-up album MUSICALITY - a collection of musical hits from Cabaret and MY FAIR LADY - flopped two years ago (02).

According to British magazine NOW!, McCutcheon and Bocelli are recording a classical Christmas single for a December release (04), with a b-side recording with ex-Bros heart-throb Matt Goss.
