The 9 O'Clock News - Derek Hough wants to be Johnny in Dirty Dancing


Yesterday we revealed that a remake of Dirty Dancing was on the cards, with Kenny Ortega, the original choreographer, taking on the role of director. The news is out there, and now Derek Hough (Cheryl Cole’s rumoured ex-boyfriend) has thrown his hat into the ring.

Derek has just finished working on his first film Cobu 3D and now he wants a chance to dance around with watermelons.

A source told The Sun, "Derek really wants Patrick Swayze's old role. He saw it did wonders for Swayze's career and wants to repeat the magic. He's a brilliant dancer but hasn't much acting experience which worries him."

We’d think his biggest concern should be the men he is up against. Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford is said to be interested and Glee's Matthew Morrison is also a contender.

We think the role should be awarded to the winner of a dance-off, preferably one we can watch.

Former Spice Girl Mel C has given Rihanna a bit of her mind for being too sexy for her young fans.

She told The Mirror, "People have to take some responsibility because we've got to a point where over-sexualisation of young children has gone too far. I think music is a big part of that. “

Women in music, very successful women, are extremely sexual and they have young fans. It is inappropriate.

"Rihanna's free to do as she pleases, of course, but I think her take on the criticism she's had is interesting. I love Rihanna, I think she's a f***ing brilliant artist, with great songs, a great record and she looks fantastic... but she's not a mum. Maybe if she becomes one she'll feel different. I hope so anyway."

What do you think? We remember similar things being said about the Spice Girls when they were massive in the '90s.

Cher Lloyd has only just had her first hit record but she has already started acting like a rock and roll star and trashing hotel rooms. Well leaving them a bit messy at least.

An insider told The Sun: "The room looked a right state. There were fag butts and ash everywhere. It didn't look pretty at all.

"She got a serious dressing-down from bosses for her behaviour - her management had to patch things up with the hotel.

"They couldn't be too hard on her though - she is selling records and doing well. She won't be doing it again in a hurry."

Woah. She left cigarette butts everywhere? That’s pretty hardcore. Doesn’t she know that proper celebrities throw tellies out the window and order live farm animals on room service?
