Morrissey is 'fascinated' by offer to appear on The Archers

Morrissey has been invited to appear on the long-running Radio 4 soap opera The Archers.

A post on Morrissey news outlet True To You says Morrissey is said to be "fascinated" by the offer.

The Archers documents life in the fictional farming community of Ambridge. Morrissey is a committed vegetarian and an opponent of the livestock industry. Previous guest appearances on The Archers include cyclist Bradley Wiggins, the Duchess Of Cornwall and Princess Margaret.

A spokesperson for Radio 4 declined to confirm whether Morrissey had been approached or what role he may take, stating that the BBC never reveals details of forthcoming plot points on The Archers.

Morrissey appeared as himself in Brookside spin-off South in 1988. In his appearance, he was recognised by character Tracey Corkhill who said: "I know who you are." He replied: "So do I."
