Hayley Tamaddon wants to make history by playing a regular character in "Coronation Street", "Emmerdale" and "EastEnders".

The 41-year-old actress played Del Dingle in "Emmerdale" from 2005 to 2007 before joining "Corrie" in 2013 for two years as Andrea Beckett, and she has now set her sights on landing a role in Albert Square to complete the soap trio.

Asked if she would be the first star to appear in major roles on the three soaps, she replied: "To play three lead characters, I think so?

"I know my friend Daniel Brocklebank has also been in all three doing little bits, so I think if I went into "EastEnders" at any point as a regular, that would be a big deal, wouldn't it?"

But Hayley is not sure if people would be able to "cope" with her London twang if she appeared in Walford.

Speaking on "Lorraine", she added: "People keep asking me if I'm going to do it and I'm like, "I don't know? Maybe one day. Who knows?"

"Do you think people will cope with my cockney accent?"

Hayley's pal Daniel is currently starring as vicar Billy Mayhew in "Corrie", but he also played minor character Ivan Jones in "Emmerdale" from 2005 to 2006, and starred as Roger Green in "EastEnders" in 2010.

What's more, Hayley's former "Emmerdale" co-star Bill Ward (James Barton) was best known for starring in "Coronation Street" for four years as Charlie Stubbs, and he also played journalist Mike Palmer in "EastEnders" in 1993.

Hayley recently hinted she may reprise her role as Andrea on the cobbles.

The former "Dancing on Ice" winners said: "She could come back one day, I'd like to see her come back. It feels like I've never really left because I'm best friends with so many of them there."
