Kym Marsh wants Will.i.am for Coronation Street

Kym Marsh wants Will.i.am to join "Coronation Street" as her on-screen boyfriend.

The 40-year-old actress is desperate to see the "Scream and Shout" hitmaker land a temporarily role in the long-running soap after he used the set in Manchester to film his new music video "Fiyah" and has admitted he thinks her alter-ego Michelle McDonald would be the perfect person for him to strike up a romance with on the cobbles.

Writing in her column for OK! magazine, she said: "Will.i.am has said he wants to be the new Norris Cole on "Coronation Street"! I can't ever imagine that happening because I think he's a bit too cool, but I know we'd all love to have him in for a cameo. He's already been to the cobbles to film his music video for his single "Fiyah, so I'm sure he'd feel right at home! Will also said he'd like to have a relationship on the show and I think he and Michelle could be a good match."

And the brunette beauty - who has portrayed Michelle for 10 years - thinks her character having a relationship with the pop star will mean the end for her marriage with Steve McDonald (Simon Gregson) for good after he cheated on her and got another woman pregnant.

She added: "She's been with plenty of other men and he seems like a good candidate so why not? I definitely think that would be the end of Steve and Michelle for good!"

But a romance will make a huge difference for Kym to film as she's just spent the past few months shooting harrowing stillborn scenes in which her alter ego tragically gave birth to her son Rory at 23 weeks.

The heartbreaking storyline was particularly difficult for the brunette beauty as the scenes mirrored a similar tragedy she and her ex-husband Jamie Lomas experienced in 2009.

The then-couple tragically lost their son Archie just minutes after he was born prematurely at 21 weeks eight years ago.

She said: "Obviously there were times when I was transported back to a time that I've tried to get away from but when I was approached about the story I was told there was no way that I had to do the storyline."
