The ITV1 show is due to celebrate its 50th anniversary in December 2010 and the soap's bosses are apparently looking to mark the occasion by including several star appearances.
Corrie producer Kim Crowther recently said in a web chat with the programme's official site: "We are planning lots for the 50th anniversary; it will be must-see television. It would be fab to see Tracy Barlow back, wouldn't it?
"I would love to bring Hilda back – and Mavis. Noel Gallagher would be great. There are also plans for some new faces in the factory."
Manchester-born Gallagher has previously confessed to being a fan of the long-running series, saying: "Why they've never asked me to be in it is really one of the scandals of our age."
