Rock group Status Quo have filmed a cameo appearance on Coronation Street in which they will play themselves.
Status Quo gave young actor Sam Aston a signed guitar
Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt will appear in three episodes of the long-running ITV soap.
The first of the episodes will be screened in September when character Les Battersby comes face to face with his rock idols.
The storyline is being kept secret but producers revealed the band would later play at Les and Cilla's wedding.
Status Quo will be seen drinking in the Rovers Return before going to a gig, when they are spotted by young Chesney, played by Sam Aston.
When Les discovers the band were there but sees a blacked-out people carrier driving away he thinks he has lost his chance to meet the duo.
Parfitt and Rossi will return to the Manchester studios to film the wedding storyline later in the year.
Rossi said: "Both Rick and I are lifelong fans of Coronation Street, so to be in the Rovers filming scenes with the regulars is an ambition fulfilled."
Their part in the show came about through their friendship with Bruce Jones, who plays Les.
"Bruce is a fan of ours and he's been to quite a few gigs. We basically asked him if we could have a cameo part, one thing led to another and here we are, trying to be actors," said Rossi.
