Former 'This Morning' presenter Fern Britton admits she is a huge fan of 'Coronation Street' and would love to appear in the soap

Fern Britton wants a role in 'Coronation Street'.

The former 'This Morning' presenter is a huge fan of the soap and can imagine herself walking down Weatherfield's famous cobbled street.

She said: "I would like to do some acting, but who knows? I would love to be in 'Coronation Street' or 'Spooks'.

"My interest in acting came about after a friend of mine wrote a sitcom for me. There was about 10 minutes' interest in it from producers and then it went quiet."

Although her 'Coronation Street' dream isn't close to coming true, Fern, 52, has been approached about appearing in a West End Musical.

She added to Woman's Own magazine: "Actually, a West-End producer - not Andrew Lloyd Webber - approached me about a musical. They sent me off to see if I could sing, and apparently I can. But I expect that will go very quiet, too!"
