London, Dec 6 IANS | 9 months ago

British singer Cheryl Cole has landed a cameo in TV drama "Coronation Street" to raise money for charity.


She will play herself as she searches for her long-lost friend, Tina MCIntyre, played by Michelle Keegan in the one-off Christmas special episode of the show.

"As a kid, I saw 'Coronation Street' every night. It is surreal to be part of something I have watched my whole life," mirror.co.uk. quoted Cole as saying.

The 30-year-old joined the cast as part of the Text Santa charity, which raises money for several Britain-based charities over the festive period.
