Leona Lewis has said that she fancies a part in EastEnders.

The X Factor star confessed she’s a huge fan of the BBC One soap, and would love a cameo in Albert Square.

The Daily Mirror quoted Leona, 29, as saying: “I really love the show.

“I don’t think I’d do anything where I had to sign up for five years, but singing in the cafe would be good.”

The singer, who makes her movie debut next month in British musical Walking On Sunshine, added: “It was fun to have a go at acting, but as Walking On Sunshine is a musical it wasn’t a million miles away from what I do.

“But I went to stage school before X Factor. I did a lot of theatre and was in the West End for a bit as well.

“If the right thing comes along I’d like to do more.”
