She definitely fancies herself the part

In hopes of branching out from the world of song and dance, The Saturdays' Mollie King apparently fancies herself as a TV presenter.

A Top Gear presenter, to be precise.


    Mollie told Notion magazine:

    "I think I should be one of the next Top Gear presenters...Think about it, it's perfect. NOBODY would see it coming."

    Not that we’re doubting your ability to host the crap outta TG, Molls, but just because people don’t see something coming, doesn’t mean it’s perfect. Like Mr Blobby hosting the 10 o’Clock news – unexpected, yet not perfect.

    Mollie continued:

    "Women are obviously better drivers than men, for a start; so I'd be bringing skill, but I think that show needs a bit of girl power."

    We’re not getting into the which-sex-is-the-better-driver debate, but we will say we’re up for some extra girl power on the show. You know, to officially end the Jeremy Clarkson era.

    Whether said in jest or not, the actual new Top Gear presenter Chris Evanshas previously said that he intends to hire at least one female presenter, so you never know.

    Speaking to BBc Radio 5, Chris said: "I want to have people who are knowledgeable about cars, people who have great energy, good timing, who are keen to do things differently."

    And when asked if he’ll be joined by a female host, Chris said: "Absolutely. But not for the sake of it. I can confirm that definitely 100%."

    Bish bosh bang! Chris, Mollie, get your people to talk.
