Stacey Solomon to star in biographical sitcom

Former The X Factor contestant Solomon will play herself in the show, written by Rob Colley and Dan Gaster.

The semi-fictional series will also star British impressionists Phil Cornwell and Ronni Ancona, who have been cast as the star's parents.

A source tells U.K. newspaper The Sun, "There’s a lot of excitement about this project. It’s not just another reality TV show, there’s a brilliant production team behind it. There’s strong interest from (British network) ITV."
