Cheryl Cole has landed herself an exciting new TV role as chief barmaid at Coronation Street‘s Rovers Return. Check her out in action!
The former Girls Aloud songstress will make a guest appearance on the much-loved ITV soap for a one-off special as part of the Text Santa charity campaign.
Cheryl, who also did her bit for ICAP‘s annual fundraising day earlier this week, will star alongside fellow glossy brunette beauty Michelle Keegan as her barmaid character Tina McIntyre’s childhood pal.
‘It has always been part of my life, we’d all watch it as kids every night,’ the 30-year-old Geordie gal said of the show. ‘It’s surreal to be part of something I’ve watched my whole life.’
‘It’s great to be able to support six wonderful charities and I really hope that this year’s appeal makes a difference to many lives’, she added.
Judging by the preview snap, Cheryl’s a natural behind the bar with her long tumbling locks, vampy red nails and dazzler of a smile sure to liven up life for the Weatherfield locals.
And who knows, Cole’s Corrie cameo could result in the soap roles flooding in for the singer – we can totally see her causing a stir amongst those Hollyoaks hunks next…
Catch Cheryl on ITV’s Text Santa at 8pm on Friday 20 December.
