The ITV soap bosses are desperate to secure the 25-year-old England midfielder - who caught the nation's attention when he starred for the country in the Euros over the summer - for a short stint on the cobbles, after learning that he's a "huge fan" of the long-running show.

An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "He [Jack] apparently likes to keep up to date with the plots and what’s happening to the characters. Let’s hope we can get him to pop into the Rovers one day. We’re sure the residents of Weatherfield would love to have an England ace gracing the cobbles."

And the football ace - who already follows a number of the soap's cast members on social media - won't have to do too much research before his stint, as he apparently tries to catch "every episode" of the programme - even when he's busy during the football season.

However, producers will have to wait until he's back in the country to reach out to him as he's currently enjoying some downtime in Mykonos with former 'Love Island' star Josh Denzel following the Euros.

An onlooker said: "Everyone seems to be out there at the moment, and they’re all partying together.

"The footballers are the toast of the town and rightly so, but the TV girls can give them a run for their money. Everyone is getting on well and really hitting it off."
