Being the runner up on the X Factor clearly isn’t paying the bills for Rebecca Ferguson. For the meantime it looks like she’s ditched her non-existent singing career and turned her talent to acting.

Well when we say acting, we really mean like Lionel Richie, she’s given into the embarrassing celeb cameo bandwagon for the Walkers Crisp adverts.

The Scouser was seen on set filming the ad looking gorgeous as always in her hometown. We’re  not sure about the purple throwback flares though Rebecca, maybe you shouldn’t have taken Cheryl’s style advice on those.

Hopefully when she’s done selling packets of cheese and onion, she’ll get herself back to the studio and actually release a single.

Would you dare to wear those purple trousers?
