Nadine Coyle has addressed speculation she’s set to appear on Derry Girls.
The Channel 4 comedy follows the lives of a group of friends who attend an all-girls school in Derry during the Troubles.
It’s long been rumoured Nadine would make a cameo in the series, as the Girls Aloud star hails from Derry and has previously admitted she’s a huge fan of the show.
Speaking to Goss.ie at a press event for RTÉ’s Last Singer Standing, Nadine didn’t deny rumours she’s set to appear on the third and final season of the sitcom.
The 36-year-old said: “I love Derry Girls. That is actually based on the school that I went to, Thornhill.”
“The writer of the show [Lisa McGee] went to that school as well. I would love to.”
Nadine also revealed what kind of character she’d like to play in Derry Girls.
“I go from.. I would like to be one of the Derry Girls in the school, and then I’m like ‘I’m far too old for that…’ But they’re about my age acting that age, so maybe I can get away with it.”
Nadine continued: “Then I think I’d be great as a hairdresser that moved away to London and came back with a funny accent and then knows everything about everything.”
“So yes, I’d definitely up for a role in Derry Girls,” she added.
The third and final series of Derry Girls began filming on October 4 in Northern Ireland.
Last April, Nadine admitted she spoke to Derry Girls creator Lisa McGee about making a cameo in the sitcom.
Speaking on the Is It Just Me? podcast, she said: “I’ve spoken to her and we’re going to try. It would be great to get a role.”
Nadine is part of the judging panel for RTÉ’s new karaoke style singing competition Last Singer Standing.
The show premieres this Saturday, October 23, at 9pm on RTÉ One.
