Take a celebrity desperate for attention, give them the name of the world's longest running soap opera and get them to name drop it as often as possible into every interview they do. The tabloids pick the interview up, the story does the rounds on t'internet and this fan's heart drops to the floor once again.
It isn't the first time Snoop Dogg has been mentioned wanting a role in Coronation Street.
And now he tells The Daily Star he's heard Cheryl Cole talking about wanting to join Corrie and says he wants to appear on Corrie with Cheryl as his wife.
The rapper is an ex-pimp, and he also has a string of criminal convictions and has been tried for murder, tells today's Star: “People always think I’m playing when I talk about Coronation Street, but I swear it’s my favourite show on TV. They got everything – sex, murder, transsexuals. There ain’t no other show that can touch it. If the producers write a cool storyline for me and Cheryl I guarantee I will clear my schedule and come do a two-week shoot. The writers are sick on Corrie. I want to see me and Cheryl arrive on the Street as a couple from overseas. Within the first week I would expect Ken Barlow to have seduced Cheryl because you know that dog don’t let his age stop his skills with the women. Then a broken-hearted Snoop falls into the arms of a broken-hearted Deirdre.”
Please, no, never let it happen. And if by some freak of nature it should and we're told by Phil Collinson that this hapless hopeless gruseome twosome will be "the new Jack and Vera" then I'm giving up and turning over to 'Stenders.
