Cheeta Star Bid

FILM star Cheeta the chimp is launching a comeback - in a bid to win a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

At 76, the world's oldest ape has signed a record deal for a remake of 1976 hit Convoy.

Cheeta, who starred in 12 Tarzan films, has been turned down for the tribute seven times but campaign manager Matthew Devlen is urging fans to lobby for a star.
