This Morning star Rochelle Humes has landed a huge Disney role, as she described it as a “dream come true.”
The Hit List host shared the exciting news on Instagram, confirming she's bagged a part in the upcoming film, Wish.
Wish has been created by the makers of Frozen and is set to be released later this month, with 34 year old Rochelle starring alongside stars such as Ariana DeBose, Chris Pine and Alan Tudyk.
Taking to Instagram, Rochelle told her followers: “It is a dream come true to join the voice cast of Wish.
“The film nods to the magical legacy of the Disney films I grew up with, and I cannot wait to see my children’s faces when they hear my voice on the big screen!”
Following on from that, Disney Studios wrote: “We are excited to announce that @RochelleHumes will be joining the voice cast of #WishMovie in the UK Theatrical version, in cinemas 24 November.”
The synopsis for the new film is: “Wish is an all-new musical-comedy welcoming audiences to the magical kingdom of Rosas, where Asha, a sharp-witted idealist, makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force – a little ball of boundless energy called Star.
“Together, Asha and Star confront a most formidable foe – the ruler of Rosas, King Magnifico – to save her community and prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen.”
Rochelle has been a part of This Morning for many years, and recently she has been on the show on a more regular basis standing in for Holly Willoughby after her shock departure.
Despite being a huge successful TV host, Rochelle has recently revealed that she used to have a stammer when she was younger.
Speaking on Loose Women, she explained: “I saw a speech therapist, and my mum got advice to send me to the GP to help me build confidence. "That's why my mum sent me to dancing and singing classes – because I had a stammer. Now, you can't shut me up.”
She also explained: “I think my mum got advised to do that by the GP at the time. I saw like a speech therapist for quite a while, but I think it was a confidence thing really, to just really find my own feet.
“I don't notice it as much now, of course, I talk for a living as I said, but if I'm nervous I will fall over myself a little bit, and I'll remember to slow down.”
