Jamie Laing wants to be British Jimmy Kimmel
Jamie Laing aspires to be the British equivalent of Jimmy Kimmel.
The 26-year-old TV personality has revealed he is desperate to kick start his career as a talk show host and wants to mimic the playful chat and sketch show format Jimmy Kimmel has had huge success with in the US.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I want to do the equivalent of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' in the US, but over here. Like where you can do impressions, you can play games, you chat to them, you do lots of different things. I think that's what we're missing in the UK, a triple threat hosting show."
The 'Made in Chelsea' star is set to join heat Radio to host a brand new show every Saturday from 10am-12pm from September 12 and admitted he only joined the E4 reality series to get presenting jobs such as the radio show.
He said: "I'm doing lots of TV projects and I'm just trying to break into the world of hosting, presenting, doing the radio shows. That's what I've always wanted to do ever since I was a kid, and that's why I joined 'Made in Chelsea'. With heat Radio it's giving me this opportunity and platform to work the skills.
"I mean for me, I've always used it as a platform for other things. My aspirations in life are to be a host and be a presenter, and it's about progressing my career. If I can progress my career and do 'Made in Chelsea' alongside it, awesome, it's just about what I can do and where I can get to."
