Morrissey has been invited to appear on the long-running Radio 4 soap opera The Archers.

A post on Morrissey news outlet True To You says Morrissey is said to be "fascinated" by the offer.

The Archers documents life in the fictional farming community of Ambridge. Morrissey is a committed vegetarian and an opponent of the livestock industry. Previous guest appearances on The Archers include cyclist Bradley Wiggins, the Duchess Of Cornwall and Princess Margaret.

A spokesperson for Radio 4 declined to confirm whether Morrissey had been approached or what role he may take, stating that the BBC never reveals details of forthcoming plot points on The Archers.

Morrissey appeared as himself in Brookside spin-off South in 1988 (pictured right). In his appearance, he was recognised by character Tracey Corkhill who said: "I know who you are." He replied: "So do I."

Meanwhile, Morrissey recently revealed the title track from his new album 'World Peace Is None of Your Business'. The song is the first to be taken from Morrissey's forthcoming solo album of the same name and is available to download immediately for those who pre-order the record.

The album will be released on July 14 and includes 'Neal Cassady Drops Dead', 'Earth Is The Loneliest Planet' and 'Kick The Bride Down The Aisle'. Scroll down to see the full tracklisting.

The singer, who released his autobiography in October 2013, has signed a new, worldwide record deal with Universal Music's US-based Harvest Records for the release of his 10th studio album. All 12 tracks were produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, The Killers) in France.
