Hello and welcome to A Slice Of Soap. I’ve heard some strange news in my time, but this will take some beating. Rocker Meat Loaf has apparently revealed that he’d love to star in EastEnders.
The Bat Out Of Hell rocker is a huge fan of the BBC soap. No stranger to acting, he won critical acclaim for his role in the 1999 hit film Fight Club. He believes he would have fun in Albert Square, according to The Sun. He’s quoted as saying: "I love EastEnders. It would be good if I turned up as this guy who dated Dot. Phil gets jealous then we get into this massive brawl and I kick his a**e and take over the Queen Vic."
OK, I’ll give credit where it’s due, at least he knows some of the characters. However, we all what happened the last time an American appeared on the show – remember Michelle Fowler’s daughter Vicki? She stood out like a hoodie in in Buckingham Palace. No more Americans speaking in EastEnders please!
It’s fun to imagine other famous people in soaps: could George Michael turn up as one of Christian’s conquests? Maybe he gets lost on his way to Hampstead Heath and ends up in Albert Square instead. What about Jodie Marsh? Maybe she could pull a pint in between pulling Street ‘studs’ Jack Duckworth and Norris Cole. Ashley Cole could upset all the Emmerdale regulars by building an enormous tasteless mock Tudor-style mansion in the Village in the shape of a pound note (cos he’s all about the cash innit) and Posh Spice could turn up in Hollyoaks as herself, only for everyone to think she’s a look-alike!
That’s it for now. Join me on Monday for a full preview of all the week’s action in the soaps. Got a comment about your favourite soap, this blog or anything else? Share it with me.
