She’s a singer, a for­mer X Fac­tor judge and L’oréal Paris brand am­bas­sador who’s no stranger to be­ing in front of the cam­era. And now we can re­veal that Ch­eryl Tweedy plans to land a top movie role.

A source tells us the for­mer Girls Aloud star is keen to catch the eyes of Hol­ly­wood film­mak­ers and has meetings set up to help her clinch a deal.

‘Ch­eryl’s go­ing to LA to try to break into act­ing and get a top Hol­ly­wood agent, says a close source. ‘She’s al­ways yearned to be an ac­tress and break out like Rihanna, Cara Delev­ingne and other young stars who’ve crossed over from other parts of the in­dus­try.’

Our source says that Ch­eryl, 34, who’s spent the last few months get­ting back into shape since the birth of son Bear in March, has also been hav­ing act­ing les­sons. We’re told she’s got her heart set on be­ing in­volved in a hugely pub­li­cised project like the next James Bond movie, after be­ing in­spired by Harry Styles.

The source says:

‘She’s been fas­ci­nated by how Harry got in­volved with Dunkirk. She wants to do the same sort of thing her­self. She’d kill to be in­volved in a 007, but she’s up for any­thing and will turn to all her Si­mon Cow­ell con­tacts and who­ever she knows in LA to get this gig.’

It’s no se­cret that Ch­eryl got the act­ing bug fol­low­ing her cameo in 2012 movie What To Ex­pect When You’re Ex­pect­ing. At the time, she said: ‘Ev­ery­one was like a fam­ily and I thought: “I could re­ally do this. I’ve ap­peared in so many videos and that’s a form of act­ing.”’

And we can re­veal that Ch­eryl’s got a meet­ing with Brad Pitt’s com­pany Plan B, which has a lot in de­vel­op­ment at script stage.

Our in­sider adds: ‘It’s an or­gan­i­sa­tion she’d be lucky to be in­volved with. Ch­eryl’s go­ing to throw out a lot of seeds and hope some­thing ger­mi­nates. Her boyfriend Liam [Payne] is be­ing sup­port­ive but the worry is al­ways how they’ll bal­ance the par­ent­ing and the am­bi­tion they both have. Ch­eryl keeps say­ing: “Over to me now.”’

The news comes after Ch­eryl was seen col­lect­ing her visa from the US Em­bassy – her first pub­lic ap­pear­ance in months. After teas­ing fans with a few heav­ily fil­tered snaps on In­sta­gram since giv­ing birth, last week she up­loaded a se­ries of hol­i­day self­ies with Liam, 24. In one of them she showed off her wash­board abs, prov­ing once and for all she’s back to her pre-preg­nancy best. With a life that could ri­val most Hol­ly­wood films, we think an act­ing ca­reer would be right up Chezza’s street…
