Cricketer Andrew Flintoff has expressed his desire to make a guest appearance on Coronation Street.

According to The People, Flintoff also revealed that his favourite characters on the ITV1 serial are Norris Cole (Malcolm Hebden), Deirdre Barlow and Emily Bishop.

He explained: "Corrie's got everything. I could easily fit it in and I'd love to have a go. I could be in The Kabin, marking up the papers with Norris and Rita.

"I heard Snoop Dogg is also interested in making an appearance. If he's a fan I'm in good company."

Meanwhile, the 32-year-old admitted that - due to living in Dubai - he watches the show on delay: "They're a few weeks behind, so at the moment Tina is still in her flat and not coming out!"

Flintoff said of his favourite characters: "I know all the characters. I think Anne Kirkbride and Eileen Derbyshire, who play Deirdre and Emily, are two of the best on TV."

Speaking about his affection for shop owner Norris, he added: "He's a nosy parker. Every scene he's in makes me laugh." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
