BBC Reps Shoot Down 50 Cent's 'Eastenders' Dream
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 rumors 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 program after catching episodes during promotional trips to the U.K.
Tabloid reports claimed this week the hip-hop star had landed a role on his favorite show, although the negotiations came too late for him to appear opposite his favorite character, tough landlady Peggy Mitchell, played by veteran British actress Barbara Windsor, who retired her role earlier this month.
However, 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."
