Chris Hughes wants to join "Coronation Street".

The "Love Island" hunk is desperate to join the long-running soap and is hoping his friend Colson Smith - who plays trainee police officer Craig Tinker in the show - will bag him a part.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Chris said: "It actually is a dream of mine to be an actor. I'd love to chance my arm at acting.

"I feel like I've gained a lot of experience in front of the camera already. I wouldn't mind being on "Coronation Street", I watch it religiously, my mum is a big "Corrie" fan as well. It's a powerful soap. The only problem is that I haven't quite got that northern accent.

"I'm actually good friends with Colson Smith, who plays Craig, I keep in touch with him and he came and watched me in the boat race for Sport Relief that I did up in Manchester.

"I've also met Lucy Fallon who plays Bethany Platt. I'm friends with a few people on it now, I met quite a lot of them at the National Television Awards."

Chris - who is single again following his split from Olivia Attwood, whom he met and fell in love with on "Love Island" - wouldn't want to enter Weatherfield as a villain though, because he thinks he's too nice to be able to pull it off.

He said: "I wouldn't like to be a villain, that's because I'm just not really a villain; I'm just too nice for that. They need some new characters; I could freshen up the cobbles!"
