Ferne McCann will be singing her heart out in 'Gatsby' musical
Ferne McCann is set to star in a musical.
The 25-year-old star has secured the role of naughty Myrtle Wilson in the sing-a-long production 'Gatsby' - the musical version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby' - but has admitted she's riddled with nerves about her new venture.
Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, she said of her new gig: "I get it, I've got to earn my stripes and I'm willing to put the work in. I'm still nervous now I've got the part!"
However, the blonde beauty shouldn't have too many problems getting into her new role as she's always had a passion for singing and even auditioned for stage school when she was younger - although she never got in.
She explained: "I sing all day long- and drive my mum and friends mad! If I see a karaoke, then I'm straight up there."
Meanwhile, the former 'The Only Way is Essex' star's career has been going from strength-to-strength over the past few months after she won over the hearts of the nation when she appeared on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' last year.
She's also landed a presenting gig on 'This Morning' where she gives the low-down on all the celebrity gossip of the day as well as making regular appearances on 'TOWIE'.
'Gatsby' will run at The Union in Southwark, London, from April 6.
