MANILA, Philippines - Boxing champion Manny Pacquiao said that he is open to the idea of appearing in the hit TV show "Glee" as a guest.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News reporter Gretchen Fullido, Pacquiao admitted that he was invited to guest on Glee but had yet to receive confirmation about the offer. Pacquiao, who counts singing as one of his many passions, said he wants to guest on the musical show.

Even Pacquiao's wife, Jinkee, and friend, Ilocos Sur Gov. Chavit Singson, are all in favor of Pacquiao's Glee guesting.

Reports of Pacquiao's guesting on US hit series started after one of the show's cast Darren Criss shared his dream to work with the boxing champion.

YouTube sensation and fellow Filipino Charice has also guested on the show as Sunshine Corazon, an exchange student from the Philippines. She has been nominated at the "1st Annual Glee: The Music Awards" hosted by Hollywood blogger Perez Hilton.
