Ricky_HattonFormer boxing champion Ricky Hatton will be appearing for a brief cameo in the next series of Shameless which begins in January.

Apparently The Hitman was “knocked out” (not for the first time in the last year or so) to meet the cast of the Channel 4 drama and now can’t wait for his episode to be screened.

The news comes after Joe Calzaghe last week announced that he was aiming for a career in the film industry…

A source told The Sun that Hatton was ‘buzzing’ to get the part as he has always been a fan of the show set in his home town of Manchester.

The insider added that in his appearance, the boxer will have a confrontation with one of the main characters.

We can’t imagine there was a long queue for that part.
