Why aye pet, would you look who's behind the bar at the Rovers Return on Coronation Street? It's only Cheryl Cole, so it is.

Now, don't go getting yourself in a panic: She's not actually joining the cast full time, just doing a bit of acting with Michelle Keegan for a rather good cause. As per Digital Spy, the Corrie writers have penned a special storyline which features the former 'Girl Aloud' as a childhood friend of Tina's y'see.

Cheryl rocks up on the street in aid of ITV's charity appeal, Text Santa, and her character's apparently expecting to pick Tina up and head to a Christmas party in Newcastle. We'd like to think it's not a Geordie Shore style bash, but stranger things have happened... Anyway, as plans always do in Corrie, the whole thing goes awry, meaning the Fairytale of Weatherfield takes a few interesting twists and turns. Turns which involve Pogues frontman Shane McGowan at some stage, apparently.

Please don't do a duet, please don't do a duet, PLEASE don't do a duet.
