Jade Ewen for Aladdin musical?

Jade Ewen could star as Princess Jasmine in the 'Aladdin' musical.

The Sugababes star is reportedly in early talks to take the female lead role in the West End show alongside stage actor Dean John-Wilson and Broadway star Trevor Dion Nicholas will reprise his role as Genie for the London production.

A spokesman for the show told the Daily Mail newspaper: "Deals aren't done and we won't be announcing the full cast for some time."

The news comes only a few months after the 27-year-old star is said to have filed for bankruptcy.

A source said at the time: "Jade put her all into her music but sadly things simply haven't gone well. She joined the Sugababes full of optimism and had high hopes given

the band were very much established in the charts. But it seems she fell victim to their shelf life expiring."

Jade has also been busy starring alongside actor Steven Seagal in the 'End of a Gun', recently taking to Twitter to reveal she was heading to Romania for the shoot.

She tweeted: "On my way to Romania to shoot my first ever action movie 'End Of A Gun' with Steven Seagal! Wish me luck. (sic)"
