Producers on hit American sitcom WILL + Grace are trying to persuade hot new couple Geri Halliwell and Jerry O'connell to guest star together on the EMMY award winning series.

According to reports in the former SPICE GIRL's native Britain, executives want Halliwell to play a lesbian character who alongside O'Connell will become the title character's new neighbours in a one off episode.

But Halliwell - who recently guest starred on SEX AND THE CITY - is reportedly reluctant to play a gay character.

A source tells British tabloid THE DAILY STAR, "It's a question of trying to persuade her it's a good idea."
