Sarah Harding has been cast in 'Coronation Street'.

The former Girls Aloud singer is set to make a guest appearance in the ITV soap in four episodes, which will be aired in the summer months.

She said: "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!"

The 33-year-old singer-turned-actress will join as a feisty character keen to make life difficult for the Cobbles' biggest troublemaker Tracy Barlow (Kate Ford).

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 - whose previous acting credits including 'Bad Day' and 'St Trinians 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold' - will begin filming for the ITV show in May.

Meanwhile, Stuart recently hinted big storylines ahead for the soap.

He said: "This summer is going to see 'Coronation Street' at its classic best - it is going to be a mixture of romance, of comedy and of drama."
