27 August 2013

US singer Demi Lovato is set to play a lesbian character on the upcoming season of ‘Glee’.

The ‘Heart Attack’ singer will be looking to lock lips with Naya Rivera’s break-out gay character Santana on the show.

Speaking on the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards, Rivera confirmed the X Factor judge will be a recurring character.

‘She’s playing my love interest so I’m very, very excited about that,’ she told reporters, adding she will sing at least one track with Lovato.

Joking ‘we’re bringing her to the dark side’, she said she could not wait to start filming the scenes.

On Twitter, Lovato confirmed she was returning back to acting.

‘Wayyyy too excited to be starting @GLEE this week!’ she said, adding: ‘I can’t believe I’m going to back to acting but the best part about it is that I get to act/sing with some of my really great friends.’

Other guest stars on the show have included Matt Bomer, Britney Spears, Ricky Martin and Kristin Chenoweth.

Glee season five will begin airing on 26 September beginning with a two-part Beatles-themed episode. It will then be followed by a tribute to the late actor Cory Monteith.
