Childhood: Pixie Lott was born in Bromley, in South East London. Her father is a stockbroker and her mother is a housewife. She was nicknamed Pixie by her mother when she was a baby.
As a child, Pixie sang in her school choir, and attended the Italia Conti Associates Saturday School in Chislehurst from the age of five. She then went on to attend the main Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, after being awarded a scholarship there.
As a student, she appeared in a West End production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Pixie also appeared in the BBC's Celebrate the Sound of Music, playing the role of Louisa von Trapp.
Aged 14, Pixie Lott performed as part of the chorus line for the opera Ca Ira, by Roger Waters, formerly of Pink Floyd.
Music Career: Pixie Lott made a breakthrough when L.A. Reid signed her to the Def Jam group, when she was just 15 years old. However, when she changed her manager, she eventually changed her record contract, and signed to Mercury Records (UK) and Interscope Records (US).

Pixie, who learnt guitar for the play, didn't feel any pressure stepping into Audrey's shoes and hasn't watched the 1961 movie since she knew she was playing the part.
