X Factor star Leona bags her first movie role

Leona Lewis is to star alongside Katy Brand and Greg Wise in new musical movie, Walking On Sunshine.

Set to the greatest hits of the 1980s, the film tells the story of Maddie, who’s marrying gorgeous Raf after a whirlwind romance and invites her sister, Taylor, to the wedding in Italy.

Unbeknownst to Maddie, however, Taylor once had a holiday romance with Raf and thinks he’s the love of her life…

It’s not yet known which role X Factor winner Leona will play, but the musical features 1980s pop classics such as Human League’s ‘Don’t You Want Me Baby’, Madonna’s ‘Holiday’, Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’ and Wham’s ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go Go’.

Walking on Sunshine will be released in UK cinemas on June 13.
