Which singers have tried their hand at acting recently?
It seems if you can sing, you should be able to act with a whole host of super singers putting down their microphones and picking up a script instead. Justin Timberlake has made one of the most impressive transferences from stage to screen with exciting supporting roles in hits including The Social Network and the Coen brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis and taking the lead role opposite Mila Kunis in Friends With Benefits.
Beyoncé successfully combined both singing and acting in the musical drama, Dreamgirls, and also tried her hand at pure acting in everyone's favourite detective film, The Pink Panther and in American thriller, Obsessed.
Of course, there are some popstars that are unlikely to ever find themselves in Oscar contention, such as Justin Bieber following his role in two episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation back in 2010, and Joss Stone's slightly more substantial TV role as Anne of Cleves in The Tudors. But which serious fan of The Spice Girls didn't love their whirlwind musical comedy Spice World? And who didn't enjoy Britney Spears' turn in the girls on tour comedy Crossroads?

While Guvnors leader Mitch (Doug Allen) has, with a huge effort, left his past behind him in order to have a career and bring up his child, things get complicated when Adam wants to make sure that the Guvnors are longer a threat to his leadership. After a bitter altercation whereby Guvnor veteran Mickey Snr. (David Essex), gets the better of Adam, the youngsters decide to go after him and Mitch.
