Dolly Parton considering move to Rotherham – Tabloid Hell

Country singer has been checking out apartments in Chuckle Brothers' hometown

Dolly Parton has revealed she is considering an unlikely move to Rotherham.

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.

Parton commented:

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.
