Casey Batchelor is keeping her fingers crossed that she's landed her first Hollywood role.

The model and former Celebrity Big Brother star told Daily Star Sunday that she recently auditioned for a leading role in a big budget film with a gritty storyline.

She said: "I'm waiting to hear back so I'm nervous but I'm hoping if it comes off it'll help me make my mark." Casey later retweeted the interview with the caption: "Excited for this! Fingers crossed! Exciting times!"

Earlier this year, Casey told BANG Showbiz that she'd rather like to land a role in EastEnders, saying: I'm getting myself an acting agent now and I'm going to, fingers crossed, do some more TV stuff ... I mean, I think I'd fit in quite well on EastEnders. Let's do a campaign and put this to EastEnders - Casey Batchelor as the new Zoe Slater.

She also said she'd quite like to try her hand at action movies.

"Do you know who I'd like to be? The new Angelina Jolie, the new Lara Croft. I'm quite flexible so I could do all the stunts and stuff. I could be like Lara Croft's long-lost niece and take over because she's English as well isn't she, Lara Croft? I'd just have to have a few etiquette lessons to sound a bit more posh."
