Former EastEnders actress Cheryl Fergison has revealed that there's one particular role that she'd absolutely LOVE to play - and it's on a rival soap. Cheryl, who played the ill-fated Heather Trott on the soap between 2007 and 2012, made the admission in an interview on Good Morning Britain earlier today (23rd Oct).

Speaking to presenters Ben Shephard and Charlotte Hawkins, who are standing in for Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan, Cheryl admitted that she'd love to act on another soap after being killed off in EastEnders.

Confessing that she'd love to star on Coronation Street and Emmerdale, Cheryl said, "You've got people with funny bones up there.

"I wouldn’t mind getting in another one of those soaps again. Corrie or Emmerdale. A long lost Dingle."

We reckon Cheryl would make an AMAZING long-lost Dingle. Make it happen, ITV!
