Leigh Francis has revealed he is writing a Keith Lemon film - and he's got a wish list of stars he'd like to be in it.

The comedian said he was hoping for the green light for the film, in which his alter-ego would take centre stage.

He said: "Paddy McGuinness is going to play Keith's cousin and I want Anna Friel to be in it and I've spoken to Martine McCutcheon and I've spoken to Pixie Lott."

He went on: "No-one has said yes yet, apart from Paddy - but no-one has said no yet either."

Leigh described the plot, saying: "It's about him becoming successful, then losing it all and becoming a tramp and then realising he was happier when he lived in Leeds and he was a big man in a small pond."

He continued: "Hopefully we'll get the green light for that and hopefully we'll be shooting in summer, otherwise we won't get the green light and I'll be waiting until the next Celebrity Juice."
