Will Young was “set on fire and struck by lightning” for his new video.

The Leave Right Now singer was asked to perform his own daredevil stunts in the promo for Changes and loved the physical challenge.

He said: “I wanted to do something physical so there was drowning, more drowning, being set on fire, struck by lightning and then drowning again. We certainly got physical – it was pretty full on.

“I think you should do different things for videos. I feel I’ve got a good legacy for them.”

Will – who appeared in movie Mrs. Henderson Presents and a theatre production of Vortex – recently revealed he is planning to put his acting career on hold to concentrate on music.

He said: “I love acting and would love to do more projects, but I think it confused people a bit. It’s tougher for people to cross over here than it is in America.

“I was really encouraged after doing the play as well because I got some good reviews from theatre critics who are known for being quite harsh.”

Will releases Changes on 14 September.
