Steps singer Lisa Scott-Lee is pictured working as a headteacher in Dubai in a white hot blazer and shorts

STEPS singer Lisa Scott-Lee has been pictured working as a headteacher in Dubai after moving to the Middle East with her family.

The 45-year-old looks every inch the cool headteacher as she poses in a white blazer and shorts at the Dubai Performing Arts Academy.

Lisa has lived in the UAE since 2011 with husband Johnny Shentall and their two children Jaden, 13, and Star Lily, 11.

Despite leaving the UK, Lisa has continued to tour and perform with her Steps bandmates since they reformed for a second time in 2017, but when she isn't on the road, she is headteacher of her own performing arts school.

Lisa and Johnny launched the Dubai Performing Arts Academy in 2014 and it has 600 pupils aged between three and 18.

The Steps star showed photographers around the impressive school where she works six days a week.

Facilities include a 500 seat theatre and she recently ran a Hamilton live workshop with West End original cast member Tarinn.

Lisa told Mirror Online: "Steps is my life. It has been my life for the last 24 years, but being principal of the school is my day job.

"I can never switch off. Even when I’m with Steps, rehearsing or shooting a video, I’ll be working on my laptop. It’s become a bit of a running joke.

"I have to flip between my Steps hat and principal hat, which can be really hard and stressful at times."

When Lisa is at home in Dubai, she revealed she works six days a week at the school.

She said: "I focus on the day-to-day running of the school and the business side of things, while Johnny is the creative ­director and main teacher."

Steps has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide since 1997 and the band released its sixth studio album, What The Future Holds in November last year.

However, travel restrictions have meant Lisa has been unable to fly to the UK to perform with her bandmates.

Lisa admitted: "It’s been really hard seeing the group perform without me, but I will definitely be back for the new album and our arena tour later this year.”
