New Corrie cast member alert! Former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding is joining the cast of* Coronation Street* - in four episodes to be aired this summer. Well, we think so. It is April Fool's Day after all.

ITV revealed the news this morning - and while we don't know ALL the details of her storyline, we DO know that she's playing "a feisty character who is going to make life difficult for troublemaker Tracy Barlow". Ooh er.

Sarah said of the news: "I am extremely excited to be joining Coronation Street. As a fan of the show it is a huge honour for me to join the cast. I can’t wait to get started!!"

Producer Stuart Blackburn added: "Sarah is proving to be a gifted and exciting actor and I'm absolutely delighted to have her on board, the viewers are in for a treat as her character will be right at the heart of a massive new story for the Barlows."

Sarah's past acting credits have ranged from the slightly dodgy (St Trinians 2: The legend of Fritton’s Gold, Run for Your Wife) to the not so bad (Freefall, Bad Day) - but we can't wait to see her on our TV screens. Filming starts for her new role in May.

Question is - will she share camera time with rumoured star Shayne Ward? And will they DUET in some sort of drunken karaoke scene? We can only hope.

Also seeing as it's April 1 today - here's hoping this ISN'T an April Fool's joke, and this is actually happening. Because WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S REAL ANY MORE.
