George has said that he would like to try his hand at acting, having first found fame in boyband Union J, who appeared on ‘The X Factor’ in 2011.

A source told the Daily Star: "As soon as producers heard that George wanted an acting career they got in touch.

"They are willing to work around George's schedule so it could either be a cameo or full time role."

It had previously been claimed that he had been taking secret acting lessons from Sir Ian McKellen.

However, a ‘Hollyoaks’ spokesperson denied that George had been approached to star on the soap.

Last week, it was claimed that fellow ‘X Factor’ and ‘I’m A Celebrity’ alumnus Jake Quickenden was being chased by ‘Hollyoaks’ producers for a role on the show.

A source told The Sun: “Jake has a decent following thanks to his appearances on top reality shows.

"He has the accent and can act, but appreciates this can be worked on."

While Jake has yet to address the rumours directly, he has previously teased his fanbase with the news that something exciting is coming in 2016.

He wrote: “Thanks to anyone who supported me in 2015… stay with me for 2016 it's gonna be even better.”
