Halsall wants Winstone on Corrie

Alan, who plays sweet-natured mechanic Tyrone Dobbs in Weatherfield, said he'd like the Scum star to play his dad on the show.

He told Reveal magazine: "It's an ambition of mine to be in a British movie starring Ray, so if I could kill two birds with one stone and act with Ray on Corrie, that would be brilliant."

Ray, who hails from London's East End, has been offered roles in rival soap EastEnders in the past.

Earlier this year, Charlie G Hawkins, who plays Walford's Darren Miller, said he'd love the seasoned British actor to play a role in Albert Square.
