Keith Duffy is leaving the cobbles of Weatherfield for the beaches of California, according to the Sunday People.
The ex-Boyzone star, who makes his first on-screen appearance in the soap next week, has been offered a part in a Baywatch spinoff. The offer came his way after meeting David Hasselhoff on a german talkshow recently.
Duffy told the newspaper: "David gave me his card and told me had a new part for me in a new telly project, which he is producing. I was very flattered."
He has a three-week stint in the soap as Irish charmer Ciaran McCarthy, rubbing Shelley up the wrong way by moving into her and Peter's flat. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
