Irish singing superstar Daniel O'Donnell has said his "greatest wish" is to appear on soap Coronation Street.

O'Donnell, 48, said he would be willing to take any role just to appear in the soap, which is about to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Appearing on TV show Loose Women alongside Beverley Callard, who plays Rovers Return landlady Liz McDonald, O'Donnell said: "I might as well say it out in public. It's my greatest wish to walk on Coronation Street and the Rovers Return.

"I'd sweep the floor just to be on Corrie."

Callard clasped his hand and told the singer: "Listen, I'm gonna take you for a pint.

"When I go back there in a few weeks, I'll take you."
