She will play a major character's girlfriend in the ITV1 soap and has filmed a handful of scenes, The Sun reports.

Bosses hope that Poole, who is married to Hyde footballer David Poole and previously dated Rio Ferdinand, will become a regular cast member if her small role proves successful.

"Carolynne is very sexy and will turn a few heads in the Dales. She filmed in the Woolpack and had a blast," a source said.

X Factor's Tulisa Contostavlos had predicted that Poole would make the show's final after she wowed the judges with a rendition of Miley Cyrus's 'The Climb'.
