Lily Allen has revealed that tracks she penned for the upcoming musical adaptation of ‘Bridget Jones’ won’t be used in the West End show, due to script rewrites.

The ‘Hard Out Here’ singer previously expressed worries about the project back in April, and she’s now confirmed that the two tracks she’s penned have been ditched.

Speaking to The Sun, Lily explained: “I wrote some great music for it but Helen Fielding wants to go back and write a whole new story.

“It’s been a long-term project and I was happy to do my bit but I’m now out of the picture.”

The stage adaptation of the hit ‘Bridget Jones’ books was expected to have its opening night way back in 2011, however the production has been delayed by multiple setbacks.

Sheridan Smith was due to take the lead role and had been working with the production team to develop the show, however, in 2012 she announced that she would not be taking part.

Lily’s currently promoting her latest album ‘Sheezus’ and her musical comeback has had mixed results.

While the album topped the charts upon its release in May, the singles have been significantly less successful and Lil herself has suggested that perhaps her new material simply isn’t that great.
