  Myleene signs 1m record deal
Updated 13 May 2003, 14.41
Myleene will be playing classical music in her new deal
Former Hear'Say singer Myleene has signed a huge record deal worth a reported 1m to make six solo albums.

But she won't be battling Kym Marsh in the pop charts, because Myleene will be making classical music.

New direction

Myleene - who plays the piano, violin and harp - has been snapped up Universal Classics.

She said: "I started playing the violin and piano when I was four, then I took up the harp when I was about 11 or 12. Before I could even read I was expressing myself through music."

He first album is expected to be shops in the autumn, and record bosses have hopes that some of her old Hear'Say fans will try her new stuff too.

Hear'Say shot to fame when they won ITV talent show Popstars, and sold a massive 1.2m copies of their debut single Pure and Simple.

But things didn't stay that way for long, and not long after Kym Marsh left the band, the remaining members split up.
