British singer Robbie Williams is on the verge of landing a role in smash hit American TV show Desperate Housewives.

The RADIO singer impressed at a screen test for the programme and is reportedly the producers' first choice to star alongside Teri Hatcher and Nicolette Sheridan, who have already set ratings records in America with 25 million viewers.

A set insider confides, "Robbie is definitely a strong contender for the role. He did a screen test and was great as they're looking for a sexy, rough-round-the-edges hunk."
