Cheryl Tweedy is apparently planning on trading in the singing career for full time telly work - and is said to be signed up to a swanky new acting agency.

She's reportedly in the process of signing up to Independent 360, which is the same agency Mel Giedroyc, The One Show's Alex Jones, and Strictly judge Bruno Tonioli are part of.

This news comes after reports that she's lined up to replace Nicole Scherzinger as an X Factor judge later this year.

A source told The Sun: “Cheryl knows she cannot depend on music to give her the profile she craves.

“Her chart career is clearly stalling, so bagging high-impact TV roles has become the priority.

“She really needs some top gigs to return her to the standing she enjoyed during her first stint on The X Factor.

This news comes after reports that there was strain on her relationship with Liam Payne.

And it was earlier this week reported that Cheryl had been left fuming over reports that her own mother Joan is the cause of her rift with Liam.

A source told Closer magazine: "Joan has been nothing but supportive to them as a couple and an amazing hands-on grandmother to Bear. Cheryl couldn't have got where she is without her.

"Of course, any young guy could find it claustrophobic when the 'mother-in-law' is living under the same roof, but Cheryl's seething over the ridiculous rumours that Joan has driven Liam away."
