WWE legend Paige asks for Coronation Street role as ITV soap teases cameo

WWE superstar Paige has gone straight to the top to ask Coronation Street bosses for a role so she can walk the famous cobbles.

The wrestling legend had to quit due to an injury she acquired a couple of years ago but she's all set for a career re-boot as a soap star.

She tweeted: "For all my brits out here… @itvcorrie just followed me and I could not be happier, throw me in an episode Corrie Orrieeee [sic]."

Much to fans' excitement Corrie then replied to say they had sent her a direct message on Instagram.

And everyone went into overdrive at the possibility.

One wrote: "Ok, this is amazing. We love Corrie here.

"Corrie do yourself a huge favour and get this talented lady onto the cobbles. Ratings would go through the roof."

A second penned: "This is something I want to see. Paige in Corrie."

Another added: "Damn that's cool not watched Corrie since May but I'd watch if I found out Paige was in it."

Could Coronation Street's DM to the star mean a secret cameo is in the works?
