Lily Allen's involvement in the Bridget Jones musical has come to an end.

Allen has worked on songs for the forthcoming West End production for the past two years and even put one song, a love letter to her fridge titled 'Yummy', online earlier in the year.

However, speaking to The Sun, Allen confirmed that a change to the production means that she will no longer be involved. "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 now I'm out of the picture."

Despite the setback, Allen has not ruled out taking her music to the stage entirely. "I have had two companies come to me and say, 'Have you got any ideas?' They want me to find a movie that I think I could adapt well and I do have some ideas that I think would work. So my work may make it to the West End yet."

Allen recently criticised the strength of her comeback album 'Sheezus', asking if the songs were good enough to warrant releasing.

Meanwhile, a group of police officers in Australia are under investigation after helping the singer post a joke picture on Instagram.
