Happy Mondays legend Bez eyes up Coronation Street role if he can ‘play himself’

Happy Mondays legend Bez wants to appear on Coronation Street.

The Bolton-born Madchester star, 56, reckons he’d be perfect for the ITV soap – as long as they let him play himself.

He told the Daily Star Sunday: “I’d love to have a pint and prop up the Rovers in Coronation Street. Imagine that. It would be amazing.

“I’d love them to write a part for me that would mean I could just be myself. Every part I’ve ever got, I’ve played myself. So I haven’t had to do much acting.”

Bez has had roles in shows including Skins and is keen to add to his CV.

He went on: “I have done a little bit over the years. In some stuff it was only small roles. But it was acting. My name was in the credits.

“I forget what I am all about sometimes. I think, ‘What the f*** am I doing now? I can’t believe what situation I’ve got myself into.’

“If any shows want me to be on, I’d be quite happy to join them.”
