A source told the newspaper: “Vic’s over the moon. It’s his favourite show and it’s always been his dream to act in it one day.

“He’s made up and can’t wait to get stuck in.”

The Shooting Stars funnyman once said he would like to play the son of newsagent Norris Cole.

“I have watched Corrie since I was little and I have never ever missed an episode. For me it’s the greatest TV,” he previously said.
