Sarah Harding's co-star cops a feel on set

Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding has been filming scenes for 'Run For Your Wife' with former EastEnders actress, Kellie Shirley.

Set in a London housing estate, the scene depicts Shirley grabbing Harding's right breast. Harding also plays alongside Danny Dyer and Denise Van Outen in the independent Brit flick. Other actors include Neil Morrissey, Christopher Biggins and Lionel Blair.

Harding plays a North London housewife called Stephanie who's unaware her taxi-driving husband (Dyer) has a second wife (Van Outen) and life in South London's Stockwell. 

The film will be Harding's first major film role after smaller performances in the St Trinian's movie and the BBC Drama 'Freefall' in which she played the love interest of Dominic Cooper. 

Shirley starred at Carly Wicks in EastEnders until the late '90s. She'll play Stephanie's friend Susie Browning.

'Run For Your Wife' is based on the theatre play written by playwright, Ray Cooney. Cooney decided to retain the British feel of the movie, and adapt the play himself for the big screen after several failed attempts by Hollywood screen-writers.

Cooney explained in his offical website: "During the next five years three draft screenplays (of varying quality), were penned by Hollywood writers, several ‘star’ actors purported to be interested and budgets proposed ranging from $10million to $25 million!"

'Run For Your Wife' is set to be released in Spring 2012.
