Speaking on the latest episode of her self-titled BBC 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.

Several actors have been heavily tipped to be in the frame to take over from Daniel Craig, with Tom Hardy, James Norton and Idris Elba all reportedly in the mix.
