'Coronation Street': Brian McFadden Reveals He Turned Down 'Corrie' Role Due To Daytime Show Commitments

Brian McFadden has revealed he turned down the chance to land a role in ‘Coronation Street’, because he was too busy already.

The former Westlife singer currently fronts the daytime show ‘Who’s Doing The Dishes?’, where members of the public have to guess which celebrity has cooked them a meal, claiming his commitment to the show meant he had too much on to meet with soap bosses.

He goes on to reveal that the role he could have been playing could well have been Aidan Connor, which eventually went to Shayne Ward, though Brian insists it wouldn’t have been a good match for him.

“I couldn’t live in Manchester for nine months or whatever it was. I just told them I didn’t have the time.”

It’s probably for the best, really, given that recent stunt casting hasn’t exactly gone down a storm with ‘Corrie’ viewers.
