Frankie Bridge wants Top Gear job

Frankie Bridge wants to present 'Top Gear'.

The Saturdays singer - who has two sons, 23-month-old Parker and four-week-old Carter, with husband Wayne Bridge - admits her bandmate Mollie King would be "great" on the motoring show, but thinks she'd be even better as she is a big fan of the programme and has a lot of knowledge about cars.

She wrote in her column for OK! magazine: "Mollie has revealed she'd love to be the new presenter of 'Top Gear'. As much as I think she'd be great, she'd have to fight me for the role because I'm a huge fan of the show.

"I always watched it with my dad and I like to think I know a lot about cars now because of it, although I still can't change a tyre."

Mollie previously insisted she thought she would be a "perfect" co-host of the new series of 'Top Gear', on which only Chris Evans has so far been confirmed as a presenter.

She said: "I think I should be one of the next 'Top Gear' presenters. Think about it, it's perfect. Nobody would see it coming. Women are obviously better drives than men, for a start; so I'd be bringing skill, but I think that show needs a bit of girl power."
