Making her Hollywood debut alongside Cameron Diaz in new film What To Expect When You're Expecting, Cheryl Cole could be forgiven for feeling overshadowed.
But in a humorous new trailer, the Girls Aloud singer tries her hardest to steal the spotlight from the actress as she plays an exaggerated version of herself.
Despite being a judge on a fictional reality show called Celebrity Dance Factor, Cheryl and her fellow judges attempt to divert the viewers attention with their own drama.

I thought it was the contestants who were supposed to dance… Cheryl jumps on the judges' table to show off her moves as Taboo and Tyce take to the floor
At one point, a Pucci dress-clad Cheryl jumps on the judges' table and starts breaking out the dance moves you'd expect to see in a Girls Aloud video.
And she's not alone, her fellow judges choreographer Tyce Diorio and The Black Eyed Peas rapper Taboo also try and hog the spotlight as they show off their moves.
In another scene, perhaps reminiscent of her former X Factor spats with Simon Cowell, Cheryl throws a glass of water over Taboo.

The 34-second trailer for the film masquerades as an advert for the 15th season of Celebrity Dance Factor – a fictional show inspired by Dancing With The Stars.
In what appears to be the series finale, Diaz's character Jules Baxter and her partner Evan (Glee star Matthew Morrison) compete for the winners' trophy with former The Hills star Whitney Port and basketball player Dwayne Wade.
Hunky Wade certainly impresses Cheryl when he somersaults backwards off the judges' table.

Bit of fun: Despite her cameo, Cheryl has no plans to become an actress
The promo introduces the three contestants and trio of judges and claims 'it just keeps getting better'.
What To Expect When You're Expecting is an ensemble piece starring a host of Hollywood stars, including Diaz, Morrison, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock, Dennis Quaid, Elizabeth Banks and Chace Crawford.
Based from the pregnancy guide of the same name, the comedy features a collection of stories about different women and their approach to motherhood.

Diaz's character Jules is a fitnes guru who falls in love with her professional partner Evan while competing on the show.
And given scenes from the previous trailer of the film, its safe to say they end up having a baby together.
But as this sneak peek at Celebrity Dance Factor shows, Jules is certainly not 'with child' at this point in the storyline.

The actress, 29, shows off her ripped body as she shimmies and shakes in a sexy Latin routine with Morrison as they try and win over the judges.
And The City star Port, 27, does a lots of 'hairography' as she throws her head around while dressed in a wacky silver costume.
Cheryl filmed her scenes on location in Atlanta, Georgia last August – just a few months after she was sensationally axed from the X Factor USA.

A film source revealed to the Daily Mail last year: 'This is a bit of fun for Cheryl. She will film the scenes imminently and is really looking forward to it.
'It doesn’t mean she suddenly wants to become an actress. It was just an opportunity that has come up while she has been having some down time and she thought it would be great fun to take part.'
While it's Cheryl's first Hollywood film role, she previously starred alongside her Girls Aloud bandmates in British comedy St Trinian's in 2007.
What To Expect When You're Expecting is due for release in the U.S. on May 18.
