Christmas came early for a Brookmans Park schoolgirl this year after she landed a starring role in a new movie opposite TV stars Catherine Tate and Martin Clunes.

Lauren Hobbs, of Bradmore Way, will appear in Nativity 3: Dude, Where’s My Donkey?, the third film in the Nativity comedy franchise.

She plays the role of Martin Clunes’ daughter.

The plot involves a school inspection, a love triangle between Martin Clunes, Catherine Tate and Adam Garcia, an Australian dancer and singer, and a school flash mob competition.

The eight-year-old, who studies drama at Top Hat Stage School in Potters Bar, spent six weeks filming in Coventry and also flew to New York as part of the film schedule.
