Find out which reality stars are planning movies... X Factor judgesWannabe pop-stars often arrive on our screens in reality talent shows hoping to be turned into international superstars. Their stories are humbling and when dreams are realised it's often like the stuff films are made of.

Well, seemingly picking up on this notion are some ex-TV-talent-show-contestants who are now attempting to make films about their fascinating 'journeys'.

And who could be more fascinating than ex-stripper and X Factor runner up Chico! The Butlins entertainer who had a number one hit with It's Chico Time in 2006 has co-written a film with a man who Wikipedia claims is his lodger.

The movie, called Lunchbox, is a "raunchy comedy about a stripping troupe on tour in England". It's set to rival the Full Monty and will be made next year.

Meanwhile, Scottish singing sensation and Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle has her brother championing a film about her life. Apparently, brother Boyle would like to see Susan Boyle: The Motion Picture and has decided he'd like Kathy Bates to play SuBo.

But beating both of these films to the Box Office comes next year's StreetDance: The Movie 3D, a teenage dance film along the lines of Step Up 2 the Streets set to star non-other than Britain's Got Talent acts George Sampson, Diversity and Flawless.

We reckon if these reality TV spin-off films succeed it won't be long before Jedward: The Movie appears and perhaps even X Factor: The Movie? There's certainly been enough drama to fill a feature length film and it's no secret how keen Simon Cowell is to cash in on the show.

By the way, all you need on this year's X Factor is over here.
