Gemma Collins has set her sights on becoming the next James Bond.
The reality TV star, 40, feels that she’s got what it takes to fill Daniel Craig ’s shoes, and is ready to become the very first female 007.
Daniel, 53, who has played Bond since 2006, is set to step down from the iconic role in September when No Time To Die finally debuts in theatres across the nation – and Gemma is ready to take over from the Hollywood star.
While huge stars of the silver screen such as Tom Hiddleston, 40, Richard Madden, 34, and Normal People’s Paul Mescal, 25, have all been favourited for the coveted role, the GC has revealed why she thinks she would be a perfect choice.
Speaking on her BBC Sounds podcast, Gemma insisted: “I’d love to do a particular job that’s all about keeping secrets. Namely being an international super spy.
“This would be my dream job.
“I am constantly obsessed with watching action movies and I can see myself being the first female Bond.
“A plus-size girl! An Essex girl! The name is Bond, Gemma Bond. It’s got a lovely ring to it.
“Now, what things would I change if I was a female Bond? Well… I quite like the films so I wouldn’t change much.”
The former TOWIE star went on: “I wouldn’t put on a fancy accent. I’d talk how I talk, it’d be absolutely fabulous. I’ve got a license to thrill baby!”
