Gemma Collins wants to be the first female James Bond after Daniel Craig quits as 007

GEMMA Collins has put her name into the ring to become the next James Bond.

Daniel Craig will step down from the role as the iconic spy when No Time To Die comes out in September, leaving the part wide open.

A number of big name Hollywood stars, including Tom Hiddleston, 40, and Richard Madden, 34, have become favoutites to take on 007.

But Gemma, 39, thinks she has got what it takes to impress Bond boss Barbara Brocolli.

Speaking on her podcast, Gemma said: “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.

“I wouldn’t put on a fancy accent. I'd talk how I talk, it’d be absolutely fabulous.

“I’ve got a licence to thrill baby!”

Daniel, 59, announced he would be stepping down in 2019 in a statement following the announcement he would take part in No Time To Die.

The upcoming film, the 25th in the iconic franchise, has been hit with a raft of issues, including director Danny Boyle, 64, quitting.

Once it got back on track, with Cary Fukunaga, 43, on board as the director and Fleabag superstar Phoebe Waller-Bridge, 35, enlisted to edit the script, filming finally got underway.

However the coronavirus pandemic has since repeatedly pushed back the release date.

No Time To Die is now expected to air in UK cinemas from 30 September.
