Former X Factor panellist turns to acting

Cheryl Cole has started filming her cameo role as a TV talent show judge in new Hollywood movie What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

The former X Factor panellist has joined Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez and Matthew Morrison in Atlanta, Georgia, as she takes her first steps towards becoming a film star.

‘This is a great opportunity for Cheryl – and a bit of fun, too,’ says Now’s source.

‘After the humiliation of her X Factor dumping, this will also help restore her self esteem.’

For her debut on set, Cheryl dressed in a tight little black Emilio Pucci lace dress and matching Louboutin heels, teamed with Hollywood sunglasses.

First hints of the 28-year-old’s new career in the movies came during the Cannes Film Festival in May when she caught the eye of Harvey Weinstein, who’s produced box office hits including The King’s Speech.

‘I want to put Cheryl Cole in one of my films,’ Harvey, 59, told the Daily Mirror.

‘I’ve heard all about her. She’d make a great leading lady.’
