Jason Donovan is eyeing a role in 'EastEnders'.
The 43-year-old actor - who shot to fame starring in Australian soap 'Neighbours' alongside Kylie Minogue - explained while he would consider a role in the BBC One show, he thinks his cockney accent would be so "terrible" it would get him the sack.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "'EastEnders' could be a fun move but to be perfectly honest, my east end accent is terrible.
"I think I would probably last five minutes in Albert Square. I would definitely end up on the cutting room floor."
However, Jason - who has now collaborated with Alan the Wall's dog to create a short song for the sausage brand - is less positive about a potential return to Ramsay Street, admitting while the Aussie soap changed his life, it is not something he wants to go back to.
He added: "The 'Neighbours' thing is a bit like old shoes, they look nice so you don't want to quite get rid of them. But you'd never actually wear them out in the street again.
"There isn't a day in my life where I don't talk about it. 'Neighbours' changed my life but I can't see myself going back to it."
