Veteran singer Tina Turner's life story is to be turned into a musical for the London stage.

The SIMPLY THE BEST star agreed to start planning the extravaganza after meeting British comic Ben Elton earlier this month (OCT03) at the Rod Stewart musical TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT - the latest show to be penned by the successful writer.

Turner is keen for Elton, who has already scored West End success with his hit Queen tribute show WE WILL ROCK YOU, to start working on a script for her musical.

Meanwhile, Turner has signed up to star in new movie GODDESS, which begins shooting in February (04).
