British singer/songwriter Foxes is set to make her acting debut in the BBC One series.

You wouldn’t think Foxes and Doctor Who go hand in hand, but the singer has confirmed that she will be appearing on the BBC show later this year.

The surprise pairing came about when producers took a shine to the singer at one of her shows, "I was playing a gig and got chatting to the show's production team who'd been watching my performance" Foxes explained, "I was telling them how much I loved Doctor Who and next thing they invited me to be on it!"

As well as making her acting debut, Foxes, who has scored five Official Singles Chart Top 40 hits, will also perform on the show.

Doctor Who lead writer and executive producer, Steven Moffat, commented "We are completely thrilled that the amazingly talented Foxes is joining us on board", before mysteriously adding, "Let's just say, the Doctor is finally catching up on his phone calls."

The new series of Doctor Who will be shown on BBC One in August.
