Sophie Ellis-Bexter to copy Kim Kardashian West for documentary

Sophie Ellis-Bexter is going to live like Kim Kardashian West for a week.

The 'Murder on the Dancefloor' singer has always distanced herself from social media, but her new documentary 'Sophie On Fame' will see her embrace Twitter, Instagram and other communication channels as she mimics the prolific posting habits of the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star.

Sophie said: "I'd always kept social media at arm's length. I worry that you put something up there, it's there for good. Maybe some of my views are a little old fashioned."

"I'd always been wary of sharing too much of my life on line but as part of my look at modern celebrity I agree to submerge myself in Kim Kardashian's social media for one week and do everything she does."

The programme will also see Sophie - who has children Sonny, 11, Kit, six, Ray, three, and Jesse, three months, with husband Richard Jones - investigate the relationship other celebrities, including

'Made in Chelsea' star Lucy Watson and 'Living Without You' singer Tulisa, have with social media and broadcasting their lives online.

The show will air UKTV's new entertainment channel W on Monday 29 February at 9pm.

Earlier on this week, Sophie marked the launch of the channel by releasing hundreds of biodegradable balloons along London's Southbank. Five of them contained the chance to win a real diamond and are still up for grabs as they are yet to be claimed by the public. Anyone who finds a balloon with a card should tweet an image of it, including the hashtag #WDiamondDash and follow @LiveonW for a chance of winning. The competition closes at midnight on February 18.
