This just in…Pixie Lott will play the Virgin Mary in the feature film Sweet Baby Jesus, a role that was formerly awarded to none other than Britney Spears.
Sources claim Britney dropped the role in the movie, a modern adaptation of the Nativity Story, due to pressure from her family.
Pixie will star opposite Sam Rockwell, Bette Midler, and Kim Cattrall. Filming begins in Maryland and Ireland later this year.
In other Pixie Lott news, her new film for television, Fred: The Movie, will debut on the UK’s Nickelodeon channel in August.
