Donovan plans new album comeback

Former Neighbours star Jason Donovan is to release his first album in 15 years.

His last album, All Around the World, languished at number 27 in the UK charts in 1993.

Donovan's new album, called Let It Be Me, is inspired by music from the late 1950s and early 1960s and will be released in November.

The 40-year-old had hits with songs like Too Many Broken Hearts in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and has enjoyed a TV comeback in recent years.

He came third in ITV1's jungle show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2006 and went on to appear in soap Echo Beach with Martine McCutcheon.

Let It Be Me features new versions of classic songs like Blue Velvet, Love Hurts and Smoke Gets In My Eyes.

The Australian-born star has also reworked his old hit Sealed With a Kiss, and written new track Dreamboats and Petticoats.

Donovan married his long-time girlfriend Angela Malloch, a stage manager and the mother of his two children, in a ceremony in Bali in June.
