Snoop Dogg wants a Rovers in LA

Snoop Dogg has revealed he is planning to open a replica of Coronation Street's Rovers Return in Los Angeles.

The hip hop star, who has previously confessed to being a massive fan of the soap, even said he would fly out Street stalwart Betty Driver, who plays Betty Williams, to serve up the first helping of hotpot in the boozer.

He told the Mirror: "I have watched Coronation Street for a lot of years and I'm in talks to do a cameo on the show, but until then a little bit of Corrie can come to me.

"People are mad for themed pubs over here, so I am doing this properly.

"Nothing will stop me serving Betty's hotpot in my pub, man. If it didn't serve hotpot it wouldn't be a proper Rovers Return."

At a party on the cobbles this summer, the Drop It Like It's Hot star was seen in a video sending a happy birthday message to the soap ahead of its 50th anniversary.
