Cilla Black has revealed that she is still hoping to land a cameo role on Coronation Street.

The 67-year-old recently made a return to acting by filming a guest appearance in ITV1's Benidorm, which airs this evening.

Speaking to The Sun about her next small screen ambition, Black said of Corrie: "I grew up with it and it's as good today as it ever was. ITV have said they'd like me to do it but it never happens.

"I wouldn't want to be in it for very long. But perhaps I could just be myself, like when Status Quo were in a couple of episodes. I'd love that."

Asked about other future TV appearances, she added: "I like to dip my toe in now and again. Anything that doesn't take up all my time."

Black has previously said that a Coronation Street appearance is her "life's ambition".

The star's Benidorm episode airs at 9pm tonight on ITV1. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
