Former Sugababes star Amelle Berrabah is moving into acting by shooting a racy role for a new British film.

The singer's time with the band came to an end in 2011 and now she's carving out a screen career.

Her first role comes in Plastic, a new thriller which co-stars Alfie Allen and Downton Abbey actor Ed Speleers. Berrabah plays a lesbian and a still from the movie shows her passionately kissing co-star Chloe Goodman in a club scene.

The movie will be released in the U.K. next month (May14).
