TOWIE star Ferne McCann is making her way into cinemas, confirming she has landed herself a role in a new film.

How exciting is that?!

Last week, Ferne was spotted sunning herself in Cannes, with reports suggesting the Essex beauty was there to line up a part in a Hollywood movie. Speaking to Reveal on her return back to London, the reality star assured us the rumours were true and she will soon be ditching the small screen for the big.

Well, not quite as she is still starring on TOWIE, but you get the idea...

Sharing her exciting news with us, Ferne revealed: "I have actually got a film role lined up. It's not like a huge role, but it's still a role. I went over to Cannes with my manager just so we could finalise a few things and meet with people."

Now that is pretty cool!

Ferne insisted acting is something she has always wanted to pursue since she was younger, but her career (until now!) just never ventured in that direction.

"I've always been a bit of an actress growing up," she explained. "I was in plays, I went to theatre school and I studied theatre studies at A-level. Acting has always been what I wanted to do, but obviously you take different paths.

"I left school and I didn't go to uni. I went travelling, so I ended up doing something different. Now I'm on TOWIE!"

While she made sure not to give too much away about her big Hollywood break, Ferne did say her trip to Cannes has given her a taste of what movie success could bring with it.

"I made a bit of a pact with myself that I'm going to go to Cannes every year," she told us. "It was amazing. I absolutely love it out there."

Heading out to the star-studded French hotspot during the Cannes Film Festival, Ferne was surrounded by A-listers including the likes of Sienna Miller, Eva Longoria and Miranda Kerr.

Doing a little celeb spotting of her own, Ferne added: "I met Erin O'Connor and she was amazing. She was so lovely and she gave me some words of wisdom. I bumped into Victoria Silvstedt too, she was very tall and so glamorous!"

Following her oh-so-glam trip to Cannes, Ferne then continued her holiday by heading to Marbella. There she joined one of her close friends to film scenes for Life On Marbs - a new TOWIE-style reality show set to air on ITVBe.

Although, Ferne did reassure us her heart lies with TOWIE and she won't be jumping ship just yet, insisting her appearance is just a cameo.

Ferne will soon be soaking up the sun with her TOWIE co-stars in Marbs.

Despite recently returning from the Spanish party resort, Ferne will be heading back to Marbs with her TOWIE co-stars to film the opening special for the show's fifteenth series.

Excited for their annual trip overseas, Ferne admits this time round, Marbella is going to be very different for her as she is now a single lady!

Not ruling out a holiday romance, the starlet teased: "If I meet someone that I fancy and I'm attracted to, of course, I'm not going to say no."

Ferne was left heartbroken after ex-boyfriend Charlie Sims shockingly split with her while quitting TOWIE earlier this year. Since then, the pair have been pictured together sparking speculation they could rekindle their romance.

Addressing rumours of a reunion, Ferne told us: "You can never say never, but right now I want to be single."

Ferne is taking part in the Great Newham London Swim and the Morrisons Great Newham London Run on 18-19 July 2015. There's still time to enter - click here for more info or to sign up.
