The Grammy award-winning singer, known mostly for her song “Clarity”, will be appearing and performing in an episode of the new series.

In a BBC statement this morning Foxes said: “”I can’t believe I’m actually going to be in an episode of Doctor Who! Especially as it all came about from a chance meeting. I was playing a gig and got chatting to the shows production team who’d been watching my performance. I was telling them how much I loved Doctor Who and next thing they invited me to be on it. I couldn’t think of a better place to make my acting debut than on one of the UK’s most iconic shows!”

3. Whilst many people on Twitter are excited by this cameo.

5. Some fans of the show are very confused.

Genuinely, for a second I thought Fleet Foxes were going to be in Doctor Who. Maybe next year SteeMo?

11. However, it isn’t the first time that there has been a singer performing on Doctor Who. Katherine Jenkins starred and performed during the show’s 2010 Christmas special.
