British pop star Stacey Solomon has landed her first Hollywood role - she is revoicing a character in the new Spongebob Squarepants movie.

The X Factor star has been given the task of providing a new voiceover for one of the seagulls for the animated film's U.K. release to make the lines clearer for British audiences.

She will be joined in the recording booth by chat show host Alan Carr, who is also revoicing one of the seagulls.

Solomon shared the news on Twitter.com, adding, "So so so excited about this".

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is due for release in the U.K. next month (Mar15).
