America Ferrera has said she would love to make an Ugly Betty movie.

The 27-year-old actress starred as unlikely fashion PA Betty Suarez in the hit ABC show for four years until it finished last year, and there have been rumours of a follow-up film.

America told This Morning: "It's so wonderful that the fans care so much that this question about the movie just keeps coming up.

"It's not anything that's actually in the works but is something that's always a possibility, and it's wonderful to know that the fans want it."

America has made her West End debut in Chicago as Roxie Hart despite suffering from a cold.

She said: "I was a little under the weather but I had an amazing time, it was so much fun. It was just great to have an audience and be on stage."

The US star revealed she loves dancing but she was finding rehearsals for the show hard work.

She said: "I wasn't trained as a dancer, I didn't grow up as a dancer, but I grew up in a household where we loved dancing and my mum loved to blare salsa music in the morning and make us dance.

"Rehearsals were intense and you can never have enough of rehearsals. I didn't feel like I'd ever be ready to share it all... It did feel like boot camp. It was six days a week of going from singing to dancing to acting, and then bringing it all together is really the biggest trick. And what is really hard about our job is to make it look fun, easy and light."
