Stringfellow girl in music debut

Playboy nightclub owner Peter Stringfellow makes a cameo appearance in the video for his ex-lapdancer girlfriend's debut single.

Lucy Carr's Euro dance track Missing You hit shelves on 13 January after already making a mark at clubs across the United Kingdom.

The singer/songwriter, 26, from Flint, north Wales, is the first artist on her partner's own label, Lickin' Records.

In the video, Stringfellow, 63, plays a spritely bad guy making a helicopter getaway from a Majorcan mansion.

Writing emotions

His club is also releasing an album of "songs to make love to".

But Carr's track has already garnered a Record Of The Week tag from influential dance DJ Dave Pearce.

Unlike many dance vocalists, she says she writes her own material.

"I usually write about old feelings and things that have happened in the past," she said.

"Missing You is about an old boyfriend, but because I wrote it so long ago it doesn't apply anymore.

"I usually dedicate it to my dog."

She will have an eye out for the 19 January Top 40 to see if the track can chart.

And, despite Stringfellow's reputation, his long-term partner says the club legend is committed enough to have visited her family home several times.

"He's been to Flint many times to visit my parents; he came on Christmas Day, which was fantastic," Carr said.

"On Boxing Day, I took him to Llandudno - he thinks it's marvellous; he loves it."
