Mamma Mia! star Amanda Seyfried has confessed she started rumours movie bosses were planning a sequel to the musical hit — because she’s desperate to reprise her role, reports.

The actress found fame — and love with co-star Dominic Cooper — when she landed a lead role in the Abba-inspired 2008 film.

Director Phyllida Lloyd was last year reported to be working on a follow-up — but Seyfried admits she took the gossip she’d heard and spread it around Hollywood.

She adds, “My boyfriend (Cooper) had talked to Phyllida (Lloyd) and she said that if they do Mamma Mia! they are going to use a whole new cast and do a prequel. And then that’s when I said ‘No, it’s not going to happen.’”
