His first foray into the world of musical theatre might not have gone to plan, but TV funnyman Harry Hill has gone back to the drawing board and is writing a new show.

The TV Burp star whose debut musical I Can't Sing!, a parody of The X Factor closed after six weeks at the Palladium, told Digital Spy that despite the pain the show's failure caused him, he's keen to have another crack at it.

"[I Can't Sing] was great fun," he told Digital Spy, "I'm kind of working on [a new musical] with Steve Brown, who wrote the last one. I guess different stuff is fun. It's nice to do different things."

"I've had a really good few years actually. It may not seem that way, because it flopped, that musical, and it was a bit painful. But it was such fun – I mean, God. It was great going to work at the Palladium every day."

Hill refused to give any more information about his new project, adding: "once you mention what it's about then it's sort of in the air and someone else will jump on it."
