Leona Lewis wants EastEnders cameo

Leona Lewis has set her sights on appearing on EastEnders.

The singer is due to make her acting debut in the musical film Walking on Sunshine, which is released on June 27.

Speaking to The Mirror, the 'Bleeding Love' star said that she is a fan of British soap EastEnders and would like to make a cameo on the programme in the future.

Lewis said: “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."

Talking about her debut movie role, the singer 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 things come along I’d like to do more."

The plot of Walking on Sunshine meanwhile revolves around a love triangle involving two sisters - played by Annabel Scholey and Hannah Arterton - and a wedding that is set to take place in Italy.

Leona Lewis is playing the role of a character called Elena who is a friend to the sisters.
