Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap. There’s still time to enter this week’s caption competition so get scribbling and make us all laugh.
Hey guys, here’s a bit of Thursday afternoon soap gossip for you concerning ex-EastEnders star Preeya Kalidas, who played gay Syed Masood’s wife Amira. According to The Sun newspaper, the ex soap star turned singer, has been dropped by her record label after her debut single flopped.
The 29-year-old actress, who quit EastEnders earlier this year for a pop career, only managed to reach number 85 in the charts with her debut single Shimmy. Bosses had expected the single to do better after Preeya appeared on The National Lottery and Loose Women to promote it but the single failed to make an impression in the charts. Apparently the ex soap star had already recorded her album Constant Cravings, which will now not be released by Mercury.
An insider said: "Shimmy got very little radio or TV airplay, which is vital for a first single. Bosses thought the album wouldn’t do much better."
A spokesman for Preeya said: "There was a difference of opinion with Mercury about the direction she should go in. If Mercury is not the right label, there are others who are interested."
He added that she would feature on grime artist Skepta’s new single Cross My Heart next month – and planned to release her next song in November on a different label.
Well, let’s hope that Preeya does better second time around, but what did you think of Preeya’s debut single Shimmy…was it any good or did the ex ‘Enders star make a mistake in giving up her day job? Tell us what you think by leaving a comment.
That’s it for me, I’m out of here. Join me tomorrow for the result of this weeks caption competition. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me (but keep it clean!).
