So 70s popstar and actor David Essex is to join The Other Soap - the one Dahn Sarf. Eastenders if you must force it out of me.
I quite like David Essex and I'm sure he'll be very good in it *grits teeth and moves swiftly on*.
Coronation Street had Status Quo making a cacophony on the cobbles not that long ago. I'm wondering if there are any other rock stars of a certain age who would be worth watching on Corrie as a novelty turn? We know that Snoop Dog is a fan - but is he old enough to count as "ageing"? I think not.
My own two dream turns would be Robert Plant, and Elvis. Okay, Elvis is no longer available (oo-er - did Stape have anything to do with that?) but it's still a nice thought. Robert Plant seems like a nice enough down to earth blokey type of bloke now that he's left the Golden God days behind - I'd be prepared to bet he watches Corrie in his jim-jams with a mug of Bovril and would love to appear. Anyone else got any ideas?
