Former THREE DEGREES star Ferguson is hoping to show the world she is much more than just an ageing singer by making the trip to Australia.
She says, "I left in 1986 and, whatever I do, people still remember me for the Three Degrees. They don't get that I've done a book that's a classic, a sitcom and starred in several musicals."
Appleton, who made her name with girlband All Saints, is going against her instincts to appear in the hit show: "Everyone thinks I am crazy because they know what I am like. I am a sadistic, masochistic freak because I hate all those things that you do out there in the jungle."
