The X Factor winner is keen to add acting to his CV

X Factor winner Matt Cardle fancies stepping on the Corrie cobbles – to play a visiting hero.

The singer enjoyed the Manchester-based soap’s tram crash storyline and he reckons it’s THE TV show to watch right now.

‘If I could have a cameo it would be on Coronation Street – just because it’s all kicking off,’ Matt, 27, tells The Sun.

‘I could run in and help someone out.’

Former painter and decorator Matt will be pleased to know that Kym Marsh is a huge fan so maybe that cameo just might materialise.
