Dizzee Rascal has revealed that he would love to become the next James Bond.

Earlier this week, a survey discovered that the rapper was the most popular choice for the first black Bond.

Speaking to the News of the World, Rascal admitted that he would like to take on the role.

"I heard that this morning, I like that," he joked. "Yeah, that's big, that's big. Why not man? I can rock a tuxedo. The whole nation's seen that. I've just got to get my lines right, that's all."

He later added: "That one needs to be done. First black James Bond, it needs to be done. And who better to do it?"

Rascal also said that he would like to star alongside Eva Mendes or Eva Longoria in the movie and quipped that he will ask Brad Pitt to help him get the role after the actor revealed that he likes 'Bonkers'.

"That's an honour," he said. "I actually saw him a few weeks ago at Claudia Schiffer's house - you know, yeah, yeah - so I might get that James Bond role after all, pull a few strings and that."
