It’s a case of double O heaven…
The 65 year old actress revealed her big ambition in an exclusive interview with TVTimes magazine.
Readers of the magazine voted her their favourite soap star of 2020 for her storyline in which Yasmeen was coercively controlled by husband Geoff.
Asked what would be on her fantasy Christmas list, Shelley replied: “I love cars. If I could have the car of my dreams, it would be a Mercedes Roadster 300 SL, a 1950s or 60s model.
“I think they’re going for about three and a half million!”
“I’d also love to play a Bond villain; that would be great fun.
“I’ll put that out there to [Bond producer] Barbara Broccoli! I could have a couple of months off Corrie, play my Bond villain, and then come back and buy the car!”
TV Times’ other award winners will be revealed on 28th November.
Yasmeen in court
Meanwhile, Shelley’s hard-hitting Coronation Street plot is soon set to reach a blistering climax.
Next week, Yasmeen will stand trial for Geoff’s attempted murder, having stabbed him in self defence back in May when she feared for her life.
Yasmeen’s granddaughter Alya is determined that justice is served, and is pinning her hopes on tracking down Geoff’s first wife, Elaine, and persuading her to testify.
But it doesn’t look when she discovers that traumatised Elaine is in a psychiatric hospital.
Yasmeen, meanwhile, is fearful of coming face to face with her evil husband again, and fully aware that it’s a case of her word against his.
Shelly continues: “The terror of seeing this man is still there.
“I think Yasmeen will have garnered strength – people have been gradually seeing what he is really like, and he is unravelling – but Geoff is getting more determined to win this battle.
Coronation Street airs on Mondays and Wednesdays 7.30pm and 8.30pm with an hour long episode at 7.30 on Fridays on ITV – see our TV Guide for full listings.
