Recently, Good Morning Britain's co-anchor, Piers Morgan, hinted that he would be appearing in Coronation Street as a "love interest" for Kym Marsh's character, Michelle McDonald.
There has been many reports claiming he is ready to start on the cobbles however the "reports" are ludacrous. Not true whatsoever.
I am going to tell you why Piers Morgan is not going to be in Coronation Street.
Coronation Street is a programme of grandeur, it is the longest running soap opera and it has not lasted this long by handing out cameo roles to people like Piers Morgan.
Seventeen years ago back in 2000, Prince Charles - The Prince Of Wales - an actual member of The Royal Family made a cameo appearance as part of the programme's 40th anniversay. That is the standard of people Coronation Street look for in cameo appearances - people like members of The Royal Family.
Speaking of The Royal Family, it is believed The Queen herself watches Coronation Street.
The Producer of Coronation Street, Kate Oates, who previously worked as a Series Producer on Emmerdale said she doesn't like celebrity cameos, she much prefers to bring in unknown actors then went on to use Michael Parr (Ross Barton - Emmerdale) as an example. He was an unknown performer and since appearing on Emmerdale, he's become a star. Ms. Oates feels this is much more rewarding than handing out small roles willy nilly.
As I mentioned earlier, Coronation Street is a programme of grandeur. It carries prestige throughout it's impressive 9100+ episodes.
To give Piers Morgan a cameo slot on Coronation Street would tarnish and rip the fabric Tony Warren built the Manchester based programme on and Kate Oates - who has been doing wonders for Corrie ever since she took the reigns of the juggernaut show - would not and will not let that happen.
