Hip hop star Snoop Dogg could make a guest appearance on Coronation Street after he begged his agent to get him a cameo on the cobbles, he revealed today.
The rapper, real name Calvin Broadus, is a massive fan of the soap and has been watching the show for 11 years.
He said: “I had my agent reach out to them to see if they could try to get me on and they said they were interested so hopefully it might happen.
“It would be perfect for me to be on the show. I’ve got friends around the world who always put me up on things and turn me on to things.
“Eleven years ago one of my friends turned me on to it.
“I love the whole dynamic, the way it is put together, it is my world, it is something I could fall into.”
Snoop Dogg was speaking at the Ordsall Community Centre in Salford, Greater Manchester, where he met young volunteers who gave up four hours of their time to paint the centre in exchange for a ticket to the rap star’s gig.
The 38-year-old was refused a visa to enter the UK in 2007 after a series of run-ins with the police.
But the ban was eventually lifted, allowing the bad boy of West Coast American rap to play at Glastonbury last week.
