Do our eyes deceive us or has Cheryl Cole landed a role on Corrie? The Girls Aloud star shared a collage of herself filming scenes for an upcoming episode of the hit soap alongside Rovers Return barmaid Michelle Keegan. In a photo from the Coronation Street Facebook page the pair are also seen pulling a pint together behind the bar of the iconic TV pub. Cheryl's wavy hair hangs over a roll-neck while Michelle embraces festive cheer with a Christmas jumper.
Fans of Cheryl's music shouldn't worry, as the pop star isn't heading for a permanent career change, she just popped into Weatherfield to shoot a one-off episode for ITV's charity fundraiser Text Santa. Ms Cole revealed her involvement in the show on Instagram with the caption: "Behind the scenes on Corrie for a cameo I am doing with charity text Santa. I had such an amazing day! #textsanta I'm so excited." The episode will see Cheryl arriving in town and heading to the Rovers Return in search of her childhood friend Tina, played by Michelle who she plans to take back to Newcastle with her for her mum's Christmas party. Tune in on the 20th December to find out how her trip to soapland works out.
