Gemma Atkinson is in Command & Conquer... yes, the one from I'm a Celebrity...

Michael Ironside, Billy Dee Williams, Sawyer from Lost... they're all cornerstones of the Hollywood talent that's littered the Command & Conquer series' ever-so-cheesy cut-scenes. Today, EA has unveiled its next RTS actress... Gemma Atkinson. Y' know, the one off Hollyoaks.

The I'm A Celebrity survivor isn't playing any old bird either - no, she's only been cast as the single biggest character in C&C history; Lt Eva McKenna... yep, the one who says "building..." in every game.

To celebrate her rise (or is that fall?) up the acting ladder, Atkinson will be making an appearance at the M Festival this weekend.

The worlds of gaming and film are getting ever closer and as an actress I wanted to explore this exciting new area of drama, broaden my acting skills and continue the active, outgoing side of my personality that I showed in I'm A Celebrity..."
