Irish singing superstar desperate for Coronation Street cameo

OHMYGOSSIP — Daniel O’Donnell wants a role in ‘Coronation Street’.
The 61-year-old crooner is a huge fan of the ITV soap and would love to walk the famous cobbles, even if it was just a cameo role, and he’d be equally happy playing either himself or a new character.
He told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: “Going on ‘Coronation Street’ is a pipe dream.
“I would take a cameo. I’ve always watched Coronation Street and it is my favourite soap on the TV. I’ve met Charlie Lawson (who played Jim McDonald).
“I’ve met a few of the ‘Coronation Street’ and I went a couple of times to the set in Manchester.
“I would take any role – as a singer or a cameo – it doesn’t really matter to me.”
While Daniel has yet to be offered a role on ‘Corrie’, perhaps he could get involved in an open mic night at the Rovers Return, which was previously suggested by series producer Iain MacLeod after Bob Dylan revealed himself to be a fan of the soap.
Ian told the Daily Telegraph newspaper last December: “To hear that Bob Dylan is a Coronation Street viewer blows my mind.
“I would absolutely love the idea of him turning up in the Rovers Return one night.
“Maybe we could write in an open mic night and a mysterious singer could roll in out of the Manchester rain and do a turn.
“I think Ken would certainly be a fan. Rita is also no stranger to a musical number, so perhaps a duet could be on the cards.
“Both he and ‘Coronation Street’ established their reputations in the 1960s, both have championed working-class voices and causes, both tell stories with a particular sensibility and sense of humour.”
Iain’s comments came after Bob admitted he loves to binge ‘Coronation Street’, and he also enjoys watching ‘Father Brown’, a series about a fictional Roman Catholic priest and amateur detective.
He said: “I recently binged: ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Father Brown’ and some early ‘Twilight Zones’. (sic)”
Bob – who was born in Minnesota, US – admits the programmes make him feel “at home”, and he much prefers to watch the likes of ‘Corrie’ and ‘Father Brown’, which features ‘Harry Potter’ star Mark Williams as the titular character, than tune into “foul-smelling or evil” shows.
He added to The Wall Street Journal newspaper: “I know they’re old-fashioned, but they make me feel at home.
“I’m no fan of packaged programs or news shows. I never watch anything foul-smelling or evil. Nothing disgusting, nothing dog a**.”
