Cheryl Cole in Doctor Who?A part in Doctor Who for Girls Aloud star and X Factor judge Cheryl Cole? That’s certainly the claim of The Mirror today – and they’re giving the impression that this would be an acting role…

Apparently no deal has been signed – hardly a surprise. Any appearance is more than likely to be a Barbara Windsor-style cameo for the lady currently top of the UK singles and album charts. According to the Mirror:

…show executives think Cheryl, 26, could play a big part in their new series. An insider said: “If she can find the time, a part will be written for her.”

Meanwhile Digital Spy have been doing their homework:

A BBC spokesperson refused to deny the speculation, saying: “The BBC will not be commenting on casting or storyline speculation for the new series of Doctor Who.”

Which as we know from previous occasions is likely to mean that there is some truth to this particular rumour.

Either way, many thanks to The Mirror for giving us the chance to feature this picture of lovely Geordie girl Cheryl Cole.
