LONDON – Hip hop star Snoop Dogg has revealed he’s a fan of British soap opera ’Coronation Street,’ and wants a cameo on the gritty show.

Snoop told fans in Manchester, northern England, on Thursday that he has been watching ‘Corrie’ for 11 years and had asked his agent to see if he can make an appearance. He said producers “said they were interested so hopefully it might happen.”

The long-running show is set amid the cobbled streets and terraced houses of the fictional working-class community of Weatherfield.

Snoop recorded a video message to mark the show’s 50th birthday earlier this year.

The 38-year-old star is an established soap opera fan, and in 2008 made an appearance on U.S. soap ‘One Life to Live.’
