Derek's keen for Cheryl to be his Baby

Derek Hough is trying to persuade movie bosses to hire Cheryl Cole as his leading lady in a remake of cult 80s film Dirty Dancing.

Cheryl‘s ex, who’s in line to play Patrick Swayze‘s character Johnny, is said to have shown executives a sizzling recording of him dancing with the pop star onstage at an O2 show. 

‘He wanted producers to see their chemistry,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘He also put in a copy of Cheryl‘s video for her single Parachute, to show how good a dancer she is.’ 

Cheryl, 28, is also rumoured to have landed a role as a TV talent show judge in new Hollywood movie What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

She will star alongside Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz and Matthew Morrison, and will start filming this month.

‘It does not mean she suddenly wants to become actress,’ a source tells MailOnline.

‘It was just an opportunity that has come up while she has been having some down time – she thought it would be fun to take part.’
