Former Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett has revealed that she is to star alongside Danny Dyer in a forthcoming movie.

The 27-year-old, who is also due to make a one-off appearance in Casualty later this year, confirmed that she will start work on the film project in the autumn.

Bang Showbiz quotes Pallett as saying: "In this business it really is either feast or famine. Since landing the guest spot in Casualty I've signed up for a part in a Brit-flick with Danny Dyer. The film's called Billy and it starts filming in September."

Pallett, best known for her soap role as Jo Sugden, is currently taking part in a touring production of the musical Rock Around The Clock.

She said: "I'm dancing, singing and acting and it's great. Tiring but great. The music is just fab - '50s stuff like Buddy Holly and The Drifters. It's a really uplifting show."

The star recently admitted that she would not rule out a return to soap in the future.
