AJ Pritchard is up for making a 'Coronation Street' cameo.
The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' pro would love to head over to the Rovers Return and chow down on one of the ITV soap's famous hot pots, after his fellow 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' campmate Beverley Callard – who is known for playing Liz McDonald on the show – revealed she wants to cook him one of the mouth-watering meals.
When asked if he would be up for making an appearance on the cobbles, the 26-year-old star exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "If it was eating food I will be there!"
But AJ – who co-hosts podcast 'AJ vs Curtis' alongside his brother Curtis Pritchard – admitted if 'Corrie' bosses don't call, then he can always go to Bev's house to share a hot pot with her and her husband Jon McEwan, who she infamously described as a "megas***" on the show.
He added: "If not, I will just have to go to her house and have the hot pot with Bev and John.
"She is a great character. A bundle of energy."
This comes after AJ's girlfriend Abbie Quinnen backed him to make a 'Corrie' cameo, and admitted it would be "so funny" seeing him on the famous cobbles.
She said: "I think he would be good.
"I did panto with him and he just made me laugh the whole way through it.
"I think because they know him and he's really trying to act it would be so funny."
The pair's comments come after Bev said she would love to make him one of cobbles legend Betty Williams' (Betty Driver) famous hot pots.
Asked who she would cook the dish for, she replied: "AJ, because he loves his food."
And she would also love to see their fellow 'I'm A Celebrity' star Hollie Arnold on the programme in the Rovers Return.
Quizzed about who she would want to run the fictional boozer with, Bev said: "I think I’d like it to be a woman, so I’d choose Hollie.
"I think two women should run the Rovers for a change and she’s really practical and sensible and she’d keep me in check."
