BBC rep shoots down 50 Cent's soap opera dreams

50 Cent's dreams of achieving TV stardom in London's East End have been dashed - representatives for hit British soap opera Eastenders have shot down rumours the rapper's set to make a cameo on the show.

The ‘In Da Club’ hitmaker has become an avid fan of the long-running BBC programme after catching episodes during promotional trips to the UK

Tabloid reports claimed this week the hip-hop star had landed a role on his favourite show, although the negotiations came too late for him to appear opposite his favourite character, tough landlady Peggy Mitchell, played by veteran British actress Barbara Windsor, who retired her role earlier this month.

But a spokesperson for the BBC has dismissed the claims.

A rep says, "We're flattered he's a fan, but there have been no talks about him appearing in the show."
