Cheryl Cole signs up for role in Glee

Cheryl Cole is to appear in Glee.

Jane Lynch – who plays coach Sue Sylvester in the musical TV show – has confirmed talks have been on-going for the 29-year-old star to take part in the show, but it has now been revealed she will be definitely be given a cameo role.

She said: ”There’s been talk on set of Cheryl appearing for a year or so, but it’s set to happen now. Matthew Morrison has spoken very highly of her [after she appeared in his film What To Expect When You’re Expecting] and the younger guys on set are keen to have her on, for obvious reasons.

”Matthew’s chatted to her and she seems keen. Cheryl’s the perfect Glee fit: she can sing, she can dance and she looks good. It would be cool if she played herself.”

Jane also joked her alter-ego Sue would not take any messing around from the Call My Name hitmaker and would be harsher on her than Simon Cowell – who famously sacked her after she worked on four auditions on the US version of The X Factor.

According to the Daily Star, she added: ”She might be used to getting treated like a princess but Sue Sylvester doesn’t make exceptions for anybody. If Cheryl starts acting like a diva, she’ll see that Sue is meaner than Simon Cowell.”
