Melanie Sykes would love to be in 'Coronation Street.'
The TV presenter - who currently appears on daytime show 'Let's Do Lunch With Gino And Mel' alongside chef Gino D'Acampo - admits if she was to star in any programme then it would be the ITV1 soap.
She said: "If I could be in anything, it'd be 'Corrie'. That's a simple one for me. It's northern, it's brilliant, it's got loads of good lines in it, and it'd be a riot. I'd probably be a barmaid, giving it large at the Rovers!"
The 42-year-old brunette recently announced her surprise engagement to 26-year-old boyfriend Jack Cockings - who she met on Twitter in April - and she revealed that her favourite programme to watch is 'Mad Men' because it's "sexy."
She told Inside Soap: "'Mad Men' thrills me beyond anything else I watch - it's just so sexy. In the early series I really liked Pete, but he's not been in it much this season. I also adore the va-va-voom girl, Joan - she's fabulous, and so together. I love 'Boardwalk Empire' as well, and 'Chatty Man' too."
