The Voice UK's Jessie J to star in Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts movie

Jessie J (The Voice UK)

Jessie J has reportedly landed a role in a movie about Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts.

The phone salesman turned worldwide opera singer will release his own movie next year, titled One Chance.

It's the first movie project from Simon Cowell, and it's set to include a huge host of British stars.

Comic James Corden will play the lead role, while Jessie will appear as Paul's pal's girlfriend alongside MacKenzie Crook aand Julie Walters.

And it's no surprise to hear that Simon Cowell himself will also be making a guest appearance as himself!

A source told the Daily Mirror this morning: “Even though Jessie’s primarily a singer, she has a real talent for acting, too.

“Producers know she works great on camera from being on The Voice. The script looks set to be hilarious, too – it’s really cleverly written and has a typically British sense of humour to it.”

Filming for the show starts next month in Wales and should be out for Christmas.

Paul became the first ever winner of Britain's Got Talent back in 2007, stunning the judges and audience with his huge voice.
