50 Cent To Star In Eastenders

The rapper has confirmed he will be heading to Albert Square...

50 Cent will be making a cameo in Eastenders after bosses of the BBC show invited him to make a guest appearance.

Fiddy, who has previously claimed to be a fan of the soap is apparently excited about filming his scenes but it upset that The Vic landlady, Peggy Mitchell (played by Barbara Windsor), will not be on set after she quit the show last Friday.

The Baby By Me rapper revealed to The Mirror: "I really wanted Peggy to throw me out of her pub, but I didn't get it organised quick enough and it's too late now,"

He added: "I've performed with Eminem and Justin Timberlake, acted with De Niro and Pacino, had a guest spot on The Simpsons - in the U.S. a sign that you've made it to the very top, but I can't fulfill my biggest showbiz dream."

Mr. Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, also made the news this week after reaching out to shamed footballer Wayne Rooney, offering to help him after his alleged affair with a £1,200 a-night prostitute.
