Noel Gallagher: ‘I want to join the cast of ‘Coronation Street”

The Oasis man reveals he is an avid viewer

Noel Gallagher has issued a plea to the writers of long-running ITV soap ‘Coronation Street’ to give him a part in the programme.

The Oasis star revealed that he and girlfriend Sara MacDonald watch the show “religiously”, although he doesn’t have a particular favourite character.

“They are all brilliant. It’s such an institution that programme, I love it. Why they’ve never asked me to be in it is really one of the scandals of our age,” Gallagher joked during an interview with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 1 today (March 13).

The guitarist then went on to reveal his joy at finding out one character – Tina McIntyre – allegedly comes from his hometown, Burnage.

“You know the girl who has just split up with Martin? Erm, Tina? Her character comes from Burnage. That’s the first time it’s ever been mentioned on ‘Coronation Street’! I did a little lap around the coffee table.

“If Martin Platt is gonna get bumped off, please let it be me”.

However, Gallagher‘s knowledge of the programme appeared to let him down – Martin Platt left ‘Coronation Street’ in 2005. Seasoned viewers will no doubt realise that the Oasis man was probably talking about Martin‘s son David.
