Former Happy Mondays dancer Bez has offered to talk to party leaders David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg if he is elected to Parliament.
The anti-fracking campaigner is looking to win as an independent in Salford and Eccles, currently held by Labour.
He told the BBC: “It’s my duty to get into people’s minds and make them realise what they are doing.”
Bez, famed for his percussive dancing, promised to continue to “shake my maracas against fracking” as an MP.
The performer, whose real name is Mark Berry, has already won a public vote, being named winner of Celebrity Big Brother in 2005.
The Happy Mondays, who came to prominence in the late 1980s, have had several hits including Step On and Kinky Afro. They reformed in 2012.
