Nadia Forde has been ruled out of the new Baywatch movie as filming starts in the US.

The model-turned-actress confirmed that she had auditioned for the big budget film starring Zac Efron, after catching the eye of production bosses.

Forde was unable to talk about the film and whether or not she had landed a role.

However, with filming now well under way, friends say that the half-Italian beauty won't be taking part in the beach flick remake.

"Filming has already started and Nadia is at home in Dublin so she would have heard by now if she had been given a role," said a source.

Hollywood heartthrob Efron started filming scenes for the remake of the famous TV series last week, alongside co-star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.

The film will also feature swimwear model Kelly Rohrbach, who has been cast as CJ Parker, the role which shot Pamela Anderson to fame more than 20 years ago.

While Forde has been ruled out, recent reports suggest that UFC fighter Cathal Pendred has landed a role in the movie.

However, the boyfriend of model and singer Michele McGrath has yet to confirm the news.

Dubliner Forde lost more than two stone taking part in I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2014.

The model-turned-actress and singer, who is dating Welsh rugby star Dominic Day, currently divides her time between Dublin, the UK and LA, where she has been auditioning for roles.

Forde is due to return to LA this summer, and recently told the Herald that she finds it difficult to talk about potential roles given the precarious nature of acting.

"I've been auditioning for different things - it's a difficult one for me because it's so unprofessional to talk about what I am and what I am not auditioning for.

"I love LA because I spent those few months there a couple of years ago and I really got to know it and where to go - I had a life out there.

"I do love it, but my loved ones are over this side of the water so it's not really somewhere that's calling for me, unless work happens," she added.
