X Factor star keen on joining Albert Square

Lewis: "I really love the show"

Former X Factor winner Leona Lewis has revealed her secret ambition to star in Eastenders.

The 29-year-old Bleeding Love singer, who won The X Factor in 2006, told The Sun newspaper that she "loves" the show.

She added: “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.”

Speaking about her movie debut in musical Walking on Sunshine, Lewis said: “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 things come along I’d like to do more”.

Do you think Leona would make a good addition to the show? Who would she play?
