Cat Deeley is secretly having acting lessons so she can become a movie star.

The television presenter - who moved from England to the United States years ago to further her career - is hoping on crossing over to the big screen.

Sources revealed to the Daily Star newspaper: ''Now she lives in Hollywood Cat's doing everything she can to make her childhood dream of being a film star come true.''

Apparently she has already auditioned for theatre roles but recently didn't get a part after going up against an establish actress.

The insider continued: ''She was annoyed recently when she lost out to actress Rebecca Romijn for a sexy singing and dancing role in a stage version of 'The Producers'. But now she's more determined than ever to show she's got what it takes to land herself a juicy movie role.''

The 35-year-old star from Birmingham, England can be seen hosting American shows such as 'The Choice'.

She recently got engaged to fellow presenter Patrick Kielty.

The pair are said to have hosted an engagement party for friends and family last month at London's The Goring Hotel, where Cat, 35, is thought to have showed off her diamond ring.

A source said: ''Cat and Patrick have been friends for years, so even though they've only been dating a few months, they know they've found The One in each other.''
