Kim Kardashian to star in Coronation Street (new love interest for Norris maybe?)

Its true, the Kardashian’s are officially taking over the UK!

There have been reports for months that the Kardashian’s are planning a summer invasion of the UK and plan to film their next series of Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s over here to tie in with the Olympics, and if today’s reports today in The Sun newspaper are to be believed, it’s not just their own show they are planning to star in, as Kim Kardashian has said she wants a cameo in Coronation Street.

Kim, who is currently dating US Rap star, Kanye West, has asked a top US film producer who lives in London if he will speak to show producers about getting her a cameo role in the show.

According to the report, Kim became a fan on the Manchester based soap, as well it’s London countrpart, EastEnders, when she was staying over here on a recent visit.

A source said: “Kim was really impressed with British TV — especially Coronation Street and EastEnders.

“After watching an episode of Corrie she tried to mimic the northern accent. She’d love a cameo just so she could sneak around the set.”

Her sights are still set on the Olympics, though, as she continues to source free tickets from some of her celebrity contacts.

The source added: “From David Beckham to Perez Hilton, they all know that Kim wants a ticket for her and Kanye, and she’s going all-out to get some.”

Producers at Coronation Street had a similar cameo request from US Rap star, Snoop Dogg, who asked if he could have the job of Butcher’s assistant after original owner, Ashley Peacock died during the tram crash.

But with enough blig to re-sink the Titanic, we think he’d be better off looking for a job in TOWIE!
