Katherine Kelly has reportedly been signed up for a presenting job on This Morning.

The former Corrie star will front a four-part mini-series, Kelly's Heroes, on the ITV show.

Starting on June 11, Katherine - who played Becky McDonald in the soap - will tour the UK meeting unsung heroes and charity campaigners, the Daily Mirror reports.

The newspaper said that the actress, currently on stage, landed the role after ITV1 bosses approached her and asked her to go for a screen test.

The 32-year-old was quoted as saying she still wanted to head back to the Street.

"They're always asking me to go back and I think that one day, I will," she said.

"But I'm really excited about the This Morning project, although I had no idea just how difficult presenting actually is.

"I got to meet all these ordinary people doing extraordinary things - all oblivious to how inspirational they all are. It was very humbling."
