Cole’s rep denies Dirty Dancing remake rumours

High School Musical choreographer Kenny Ortega, who worked on the original 1987 hit with Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, is directing an updated version of the film.

Several stars, including Selena Gomez, Cheryl Cole and Lea Michele, have been linked to the project, but Cole, who recently landed a cameo in Cameron Diaz’s new movie What To Expect When You’re Expecting, is not in the running for the female lead of Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman.

Her publicist tells BBC’s Newsbeat, “Cheryl is only confirmed for a cameo in What To Expect When You’re Expecting.”
