She’s shooting for her first leading television role – a Sky comedy drama called Dreamland, set in Margate. 

And Lily Allen, 37, appeared full of the joys of spring when she was seen filming alongside Doctor Who star Freema Agyeman, 43, at the seaside town on Monday. 

Braving the cold, the singer Lily looked incredible going braless under a 1920s style pink tiered dress as she danced around the set like a ballerina.

At certain points, she was forced to slip on a padded jacket in a bid to keep out the cold as she filmed alongside the seafront. 

The spirited star had a big smile on her face as she had her hair and make-up touched up in between takes.

The series is created by Catastrophe’s Sharon Horgan and is based on Sky Arts’ short Morgana Robinson’s Summer, and sees Lily playing a woman called Mel attending her sister’s baby shower in the seaside village.
