Leona's jumped Bond Q

"She thinks it's a real honour to follow in the footsteps of some of the world's biggest female names including SHIRLEY BASSEY, SHERYL CROW, MADONNA and TINA TURNER."

The 22-year-old's record company BMG said: "Leona's management are in talks with various movie producers at the moment for a number of projects."

It's been a whirlwind year for Leona who was a pizza waitress before she shot to stardom on The X Factor. She told me: "A year ago I was preparing for one of the live heats. I was so nervous. I never knew I was going to win."

Her debut single A Moment Like This was the Christmas No 1 and smashed the world record when it was downloaded 50,000 times in the first half hour.

27_10_mcflyBleeding Love is set to be the fastest-selling single of 2007, and I'm sure she'll pip Take That's Rule The World to the No 1 slot tonight. Her debut album Spirit is out on November 12.

Last night Leona told me: "I'm just hoping for the best."

LEONA'S runaway success means she's bound to swat McFLY's single Star Girl and keep it from the top spot in the charts.

They had huge support when 3,000 fans turned up to see them at a tiny record shop in Essex.

But sorry, lads, I think there'll Leon-ly be one winner.

McFLY's single this time is called The Heart Never Lies, not Star Girl....
