Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard has shown fans that no dream is too big.
The ambitious dancer and brother of Strictly Come Dancing pro and I’m A Celeb star AJ Pritchard has revealed his sights are set on stepping into 007’s shoes.
Curtis unveiled his plans after being egged on by his fellow Celebs Go Dating stars – who showered him with praise during filming for an upcoming episode on E4.
The reality star revealed he’s always be told to “dream big and think big” as he told of his ambitions to be cast as the world’s most famous spy.
As Daniel Craig prepares to pass the baton after the release of his final Bond film this year, Curtis reckons he’s in with a chance of following in his footsteps.
He told the Sun: “I’m looking to be the next James Bond.
“Everyone in the Celebs Go Dating mansion said to me, ‘You should be James Bond, Curtis’.
“Hopefully that’ll happen one day – ‘We won’t cast Tom Hardy then, we’ll get you in there instead’.
“I do love Tom but sorry, move over mate.”
Until he’s cast to emerge from the ocean while removing his wetsuit to reveal a tuxedo underneath, Curtis will have to settle for reality telly.
He and brother AJ are set to star is their own reality show later this year.
But Curtis did add: “We are planning world domination. I’ve always been told to dream big and think big.”
Tough guy actor Tom Hardy has been revealed as the bookies’ new favourite to be the next James Bond.
The 43-year-old, who played both Kray twins in gangster film Legend, is the 6-4 favourite at bookmaker Coral to follow in Daniel Craig’s footsteps as the next 007.
McMafia actor James Norton, 35, is in second place with odds of 5-2, while Scottish actor Sam Heughan, 40, best known for his role in the historical drama Outlander, is the other main contender at 6-1.
Other actors in the running are Idris Elba (10-1), Richard Madden and Jamie Bell (12-1).
Speculation over who is to play 007 next has been rife ever since Craig announced his departure, with fans eager to see who dons the famous tuxedo next.
Craig is the longest serving Bond (after 4,527 days at the helm) – taking over from Sir Roger Moore, but the heartthrob’s time playing the spy is up after the release of his fifth and final film later this year.
No Time To Die is Craig’s last movie as Bond.
