'Coronation Street' star Brooke Vincent could be swapping the cobbles for the jungle later this year as she is keen to get a slot on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
Brooke Vincent wants to compete on this year's 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'.
The 'Coronation Street' star - who is known for playing lesbian Sophie Webster in the long-running soap - is keen to swap the cobbles of Weatherfield for the Australian outback when the jungle-based show returns to screens this winter.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, she explained: "I always say, 'Oh, I could so do the jungle.' "
And the 23-year-old actress believes she'd provide endless entertainment for viewers if she did nab a spot on the show.
She added: "I do get bored easily. If I was in there you'd see a lot of singing, dancing and making up songs."
And Brooke should have no problem trying to squeeze the jungle gig into her busy schedule as 'Corrie' bosses are also willing to give her eight weeks off next summer so she can star as a pregnant mother in a theatre production.
A source said recently: "Brooke was approached to do live theatre and she asked 'Corrie' bosses if she could take some time off next year. She is just waiting for confirmed dates but the 'Corrie' bosses have been very accommodating. There is never an issue so long as they are given enough notice so they don't have to re-write scripts."
