Nicole Scherzinger reveals toothbrush ad

Nicole Scherzinger has revealed her near-brush with fame as a dancing toothbrush

She told The Sun: 'I missed out on a couple of big movies when I was on the audition trail early in my career. I got really close but didn't ever get the big job.

'For TV stuff I auditioned for the Colgate commercial once. I was really desperate for the job. They didn't cast me as the dancing toothbrush and I would have been spectacular.

'But I just felt at that moment I was going to prove them wrong. One day they would see I was so that dancing toothbrush- and so much more. I could have been the best dancing toothbrush ever.'
