British actress Martine McCutcheon is hoping to secure a massive career for herself in America - by taking one of the producers of hit musical Chicago out to dinner.

The 27-year-old singer and actress, who currently stars in the new movie Love Actually, is hoping to cash in on the expected success of the film by getting acquainted with Hollywood heavyweight NEIL MERON.

McCutcheon, who served as a bridesmaid at Liza Minnelli's 2002 wedding to David Gest, admits that when she first encountered Meron she offered to "do the splits, the kicks, cartwheels" for him and partner Craig Zadan right then and there.

But the brunette beauty has been saved the embarrassment.

She explains, "I'm going to take him to dinner at the IVY in London."
