Coleen to star in Corrie?
09:30 27 April 2006
Coleen McLoughlin wants to star in 'Coronation Street'.
The 20-year-old fiancée of football ace Wayne Rooney, who has been taking acting lessons to impress TV bosses, has confessed she would love to appear in the hit soap.
The pretty blonde, who was briefly considered for a part in ITV prison drama 'Bad Girls', says she has wanted to star in Corrie ever since former pop singer Kym Marsh made her debut in it.
Coleen, who recently turned down the offer to appear in 'Celebrity X Factor', told Britain's New magazine: "I love the idea. When I saw Kym Marsh in the show I thought, 'Great, this is the sort of role that I could pull off'."
It seems Coleen's dream might come true, as actress Samia Smith, who plays feisty hairdresser Maria Sutherland in the soap, has put in a good word for her pal with show bosses.
Samia, 23, has also reportedly said that the brunette would be "great in the show" and "make ratings soar".
