Baby Queen was joined by the cast of hit Netflix show ‘Heartstopper’ on stage at her London headline show last night.

During the show at Camden’s Electric Ballroom yesterday (April 27), the singer, real name Arabella Latham, performed her song ‘Colours of You’, which was written for the show.

“I’ve got some friends here tonight that are going to help me sing the last chorus. You might recognise them – you’ve seen ‘Heartstopper’ on Netflix, right?” she told the crowd.

“Bring them on, let’s go,” she said as the cast rushed on to finish the song with her. She was was joined by Joe Locke (Charlie Spring), Sebastian Croft (Ben Hope), Yasmin Finney (Elle), Corinna Brown (Tara), Tobie Donovan (Isaac), Kizzy Edgell (Darcy) and Jenny Walser (Tori).

‘Heartstopper’ is a coming-of-age series based on the graphic novels of the same name by Alice Oseman, which follows a high school student Charlie, who develops a crush on classmate Nick.

“To be asked to be a part of a story as beautiful and culturally important as Alice Oseman’s Heartstopper was unbelievable, and still feels completely surreal,”  Latham said of the song upon release, which was used in the teaser trailer for ‘Heartstopper’.

“‘Colours Of You’ is a song I wrote about one of the lead character’s journeys through the discovery and acceptance of his own sexuality. The song means a lot to me and is different to a lot of the music people have heard from me before, so I feel like I get to show a different side to myself as an artist and a writer.”

The ‘Heartstopper’ soundtrack also features songs from Beabadoobee, Wolf Alice, CHVRCHES, Girl In Red and more.

This week the series earned a 100 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, an achievement shared by some seasons of ‘Arrested Development’, ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’.

As ‘Heartstopper’ was released last week (April 22), it was revealed that Olivia Colman starred as Nick’s mother Sarah, which was kept a secret until the series debut.

‘Heartstopper’ is available to stream on Netflix now.
