Outnumbered star Tyger Drew-Honey has confessed he became a Girls Aloud fan after working with Kimberley Walsh - because he thought she was "really fit".
The 15-year-old actor, who plays sulky teenager Jake in the award-winning BBC comedy, stars alongside Kimberley, Anjelica Huston, Noel Fielding, Mathew Horne, Prunella Scales and Jo Brand in Horrid Henry: The Movie.
Tyger revealed: "I was working with Kimberly Walsh. She was really nice and really fit. I never really was a fan of Girls Aloud but I am now because she's really nice."
The teen star plays Horrid Henry's cousin Stuck-Up Steve.
Tyger said: "He is incredibly snobby and stuck-up and he wears not very nice clothes - really tight jumpers - and he has a horrible quiff. And he's always got his nose in the air and he thinks he's so much better than everybody else. He's not very nice to be honest."
The Outnumbered star is keen to expand his range of roles.
He said: "I'd like to do horror. I'd like to try a horror film with blood and gore and stuff. I think that would be really interesting."
Tyger revealed he wants to keep acting as he gets older, but also wants to write songs - although he isn't sure about attempting a pop career.
He said: "I think actor slash writer is what I'd like to be because I really enjoy writing songs and screenplays and comedy sketches and things.
"I play the drums, I can sort of hold a tune on a guitar and a keyboard and I'm quite musical, I guess. But I don't think I'd ever perform. I'd like to write songs for artists but I don't know if I'd be the one that sings them."
