So (Coronation) street

We’ve already reported on hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg’s slightly bizarre love for Coronation Street, and it has already tickled us immeasurably: back in January, when the weather was cold, blustery and generally rubbish, the Doggfather warmed the cockles of all our hearts by saying that he wanted to make a cameo appearance in the Rovers after a concert, adding, ‘I'm not interested in other soaps like EastEnders, Coronation Street is what it's all about.’

We all had a good laugh at that, thinking ‘imagine the West Coast’s finest making an appearance in dreary old Wetherfield, that’d been a turn up, eh?’, only now it looks like it actually might happen. The rapper is in talks about making a cameo appearance in Ashley Peacock’s butcher’s shop, and he wants David Beckham to star alongside him when he goes there. But what order will he make? We reckon sausages.

‘I’d love to be in it,’ said Snoopy D O Double G. ‘My people have reached out to the producers and we are going to do it. They should definitely put some Snoop Dogg in there. The butcher's will be the cool spot. I'd have my man David Beckham in there working with me. He's my guy.’
