Patsy Kensit is desperate to be cast in 'Coronation Street' after working with former 'Corrie' star Michelle Keegan in 'Tina & Bobby'
Patsy Kensit wants to land a role in 'Coronation Street' after starring in 'Tina & Bobby' with Michelle Keegan.
The former 'Emmerdale' actress stars as Tina's [Michelle] mother Betty in the ITV series about the life of the late footballer Bobby Moore, and after playing a "character-driven" persona she is desperate to land a similar part on the cobbles like the brunette beauty, who played Tina McIntyre from 2008 to 2014.
Appearing on 'Lorraine' on Friday (20.01.17) Patsy - who has 17-year-old Lennon Gallagher with ex-husband Liam Gallagher and 24-year-old son James Kerr with her former Simple Minds star spouse Jim Kerr - said: "Michelle [Keegan] is in it of course, and we chatted about it a lot on the set and had a lot of laughs.
"Every day I was sorry that filming was over and that's not normal. Usually I'm running to get changed into a tracksuit to head home. It was great to play a proper character-driven role and this is what I want to do from now on. My kids are old enough to feed the cat now, so I'm free to be away during the week. I could easily jump on the train to Manchester. If producers offered me a role I'd be up for the A1 in an Instant."
The 48-year-old buxom blonde recently revealed she would "die" to get the chance to star in the rival soap to 'Emmerdale' - which she is famous for portraying Sadie King in from 2004 to 2006 - and is keen to do more theatre work.
She previously said: "I'd love to do some theatre and I'd die to be on 'Coronation Street'. I'd give my right arm for that, I'm such a fan."
Since she left 'Emmerdale' in 2006 Patsy has most notably starred in 'Holby City' from 2007 to 2010, appeared on 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2010 and was on 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2015.
