Cheryl Cole lands role in new pregnancy movie

The Girls Aloud singer will appear alongside J-Lo and Cameron Diaz

Cheryl Cole has apparently landed her first film role.

The former X Factor judge has been slated to appear alongside Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz in new Hollywood pregnancy flick What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

Cole will be drawing from life experience for her part in the film, which sees her making a cameo as a judge on a television talent show. She worked on the UK version of The X Factor for three series and was set to appear on the US version, but was sacked before the show was aired.


The film is based on the pregnancy guide book, also called What To Expect When You’re Expecting, and will hit cinema screens in May 2012, reports The Daily Mail.

A ‘source’ told the newspaper: “This is a bit of fun for Cheryl. She will film the scenes imminently and is really looking forward to it… It doesn’t mean she suddenly wants to become actress.” They added: “It was just an opportunity that has come up while she has been having some down time and she thought it would be great fun to take part.”
