Tyra Banks has confirmed a Coyote Ugly sequel is in the works, and we cannot cope.

The Dancing With The Stars host had a very brief role as Zoe in the 2000 film, and revealed that more will be on the way.

Appearing on The Kelly Clarkson show, she opened up about her own dancing talent, when conversation turned to the movie.

‘I literally was supposed to be on a conference call today about bringing Coyote Ugly back,’ the 46-year-old announced.

‘We were supposed to be on a call today, and I’m talking to you and I can’t talk to them.

‘Yes, we are talking about trying to do Coyote Ugly 2 or a series.’

The original film is a total classic, and followed Violet Sanford (Piper Perabo), as she moved to New York to pursue a music career.

When this went south, she ended up working at the Coyote Ugly bar – showing off her best dance moves on top of the bar.

Side note: LeAnn Rimes’ song Can’t Fight The Moonlight, from the soundtrack, is still an absolute banger.

As well as dropping the huge bombshell, Tyra also lifted the lid on her audition for the film, joking that she was left out of breath from her dance routine.

‘For my audition for Coyote Ugly, they asked me what song I wanted to play,’ she continued.

‘I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll take Prince’s Kiss. They said just dance for a couple of seconds… They push play.

‘I’m in this huge hotel room, all these casting people lined up, looking at me… And I’m dancing. I’m head whipping, doing all this stuff. 20 seconds go by, 30, a minute…, a minute and a half, three minutes.

‘The whole song I ended up dancing. After I’m out of breath, and then they all just started laughing.

‘They’re like, “We are so sorry, but we were enjoying that so much, we kept the music going”.’

We don’t blame them, to be honest.

Anyone off to watch the original film in preparation?
