Kerry Katona is eyeing a role in Coronation Street.

The Atomic Kitten singer has revealed she'd love to follow in the footsteps of fellow singers Sarah Harding, Kym Marsh and Shayne Ward by joining the ITV soap.

Kerry told Daily Star Sunday: "I think I'd be brilliant in Coronation Street. I'd love to do it. I wouldn't want to be just a cameo role, I'd want to be a character and join properly. I'm a northerner so it would be perfect."

The mother-of-five pointed out producers must like her as characters have mentioned her name three times over the years!

If Kerry did land a role on the cobbles, she wouldn't be the first popstar to prop up the Rovers Return.

Former Hear'Say singer Kym Marsh has played Michelle Connor since 2006, while Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding enjoyed a four-episode stint as Joni Preston earlier this year.

Most recently, former X Factor winner Shayne Ward has signed a one-year contract to appear as Aidan Connor, while ex-Westlife singer Brian McFadden – Kerry's ex-husband – has said he was approached to audition for the show.
