Rapper Diddy has confirmed he will team up with actor Vince Vaughn and Tyne and Wear comic Sarah Millican to record 'Prostitute Alley', a song idea inspired by the comic's tale of how she has to negotiate through a Manchester alley packed with sex workers to reach her front door.
The trio came up with the concept when they appeared on the BBC's The Graham Norton Show.
On the programme, the South Shields-born Millican said that in order to get to her flat in Manchester she walks through an alley where women engaged in the world's oldest profession sell their wares.
"I live in a nice flat but you've kind of got to walk through what I call Prostitute Alley; but they don't normally bother me, I'm not really what they're looking for," she said.
After Millican performed an impromptu performance of Diddy's 'Bad Boy For Life', an inspired Vaughn said: "When you first started the conversation, I thought Prostitute Alley was a dream - not any more, now I know it's a reality. We're going to do this thing."
Diddy too seemed inspired, saying that Millican should "speak from her heart" and "write songs that are true to her" - et voila, Prostitute Alley was born.
Talking about the project, Diddy said it was "inspired by Manchester street culture".
"Sarah's coming out Monday, we're going to hit The Blue Room in Manhattan and bust it out."
Diddy said he would "mastermind" the production of the track, saying he planned to walk around New York's sex districts prior to the recording, to inspire Vaughn and Millican.
"We're gonna pimp on this song, let me tell you," he said.
