Driver Plans Soap Debut After Flop Pop Career

MINNIE DRIVER is considering following SIR IAN McKELLEN's example by starring in a soap opera - to cheer her up after her pop career flopped when her group THE MILO ROTH BAND were dropped by their record label.

The PHANTOM OF THE OPERA star has accepted she must return to her acting roots after the failure of her recent singing career.

But she isn't ready to star in films again, so is considering acting in British drama series EASTENDERS, after witnessing McKellen's success in rival show CORONATION STREET.

She says, "I've never done that sort of thing - you never know, I may end up in EastEnders."
