22 September 2012

We were all pretty intrigued when the news emerged that BGT winner Paul Potts was to have a film based on his life and now we're even more intrigued as the latest celeb to get involved in the movie has been announced as the one and only Jessie J, who is set to play the girlfriend of Paul's best pal.

The singer and Voice coach will star in the star-studded biopic, which follows the Britain's Got Talent winner's life. Other stars to be confirmed so far include the likes of James Corden and Julie Walters.

According to The Daily Mirror, Jessie will play the girlfriend of Paul's best friend, who will be played by The Office star MacKenzie Crook.

A source told the publication: “Jessie was a later addition to the cast, after the rest of the big names had been announced."

They continued, “She is a great casting. Even though she’s primarily a singer, she has a real talent for acting, too."

“The script looks hilarious – it’s really cleverly written and has a typically British sense of humour."

Before adding, “It’s a real rags-to-riches story.”

And the stage is a pretty familiar place for Jessie, as not only is the singer used to entertaining thousands across the globe with her sensational voice, she also starred in the West End in 'Whistle Down The Wind' when she was younger, as well as attending the BRIT school of performing arts.

Filming is to start at the end of October. Exciting stuff!
