Dolly Parton considering move to Rotherham - Tabloid Hell
Country singer has been checking out apartments in Chuckle Brothers' hometown
The country singer has said that she is looking for somewhere to "hide out" - and the South Yorkshire town, famed for being the home of The Chuckle Brothers, seems to fit the bill.
I was looking for a little apartment. I thought that would be a great place for me to go and hide out. So you never know. You may be walking down the streets of Rotherham and see me coming out of a little cubbyhole somewhere.
She made the revelation in BBC Radio 4 documentary How Dolly Got Rotherham Reading, which was broadcast this morning (July 23).
The show told the story behind Parton's children's literacy charity Imagination Library, which she opened a branch of in Rotherham four years ago.
The town's musical alumni include Muse's Chris Wolstenholme and Pulp drummer Nick Banks.
