British pop star Pixie Lott had to suffer in the cold winter weather while filming her role in U.K. detective drama Inspector George Gently.

The Mama Do hitmaker plays a young holiday camp singer whose dead body is found washed up on a beach in an episode of the crime series and she admits the scene was tough to film.

She tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "The first scene sees me dead on a beach. It was freezing and I had to lie on wet sand covered in cold water. But because I was supposed to be dead I couldn't shiver."

However, Lott insists the ordeal has not put her off acting, adding, "Fortunately you see what happened to her in a flashback and I do actually get to speak as well as do some singing and dancing. I really enjoyed it, so I'd like to do more acting in the future."
