Derek Hough is reportedly keen for Cheryl Cole to star opposite him in the remake of Dirty Dancing.

The Dancing With The Stars professional - whose close friendship with Cheryl has lead to speculation they are dating - is one of the names being considered to take on Patrick Swayze's role in the remake of the hit 80s movie.

And The Sun reports he is trying to persuade film bosses the former X Factor judge should be his Baby.

A source said: "Derek submitted a DVD of him dancing with Cheryl at her O2 show when she supported The Black Eyed Peas last year. He wanted producers to see their chemistry.

"He also put in a copy of Cheryl's video for her single Parachute, to show how good a dancer she is."

Lionsgate is remaking the film with High School Musical creator Kenny Ortega, who choreographed the original film, as director.

Cheryl has recently signed up to make a film cameo in What To Expect When You're Expecting, starring Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez but has no plans to appear in any other movies at the moment.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
