Disney Star Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole is set to be the new face of Disney.

The 'Fight for This Love' singer - who is attempting to break the US following her split from soccer star husband Ashley Cole - is reportedly being courted by the family studio to show off her acting skills in a TV show or movie.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Cheryl is the full package. She's got it all - brains, beauty, and a hint of bolshyness. It's unbelievable the amount of interest she stirred up in the Disney Studios following her recent trips to Los Angeles, where she was making a music video.

"That 'Parachute' video with Derek Hough, who is massive in the States because of 'Dancing with the Stars', really showed just how graceful and dynamic she can be.

"From her experiences with Girls Aloud she can handle the high-energy routines, so the plan is to incorporate her in a show.

"It's early days but a one-off like the Jonas Brothers' movie 'Camp Rock' would be the way to go."

News of a possible Disney deal for the 26-year-old star - who is already in talks to appear as a judge on Simon Cowell's US version of 'The X Factor', alongside her stint on the British version - has already excited one of the studio's current stars, 17-year-old Selena Gomez.

The 'Wizards of Waverly Place' actress said: "Oh my goodness, I'd love to work with Cheryl Cole on a Disney show. I've just seen that video 'Parachute'. She is beautiful. I'd love to."

If Cheryl signs a contract, she would be following in the footsteps of global sensations Miley Cyrus, and 'High School Musical' stars Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, who all got their big breaks through Disney.
