IT'S A Sin's Olly Alexander has hinted that he could become the replacement for Doctor Who's Jodie Whittaker.
The 30-year-old, who has become a household name after starring in Russell T. Davies' Channel 4 drama about the AIDS epidemic, has kept coy as to whether the rumours are true.
Olly has been suggested as a potential replacement for Jodie, 38, who will soon be stepping down from the show.
Former show director Russell, who worked closely with the Years & Years singer, admitted he felt Olly was the perfect fit.
While talking on Heart Breakfast, Alexander was quizzed as to whether or not he'd been approached about the role.
"I mean, if I was do you think I'd be able to tell you?" he said. "It's true I am very indiscreet but my lips are sealed."
Olly, who would become the fourteenth Doctor in the sci-fi show, admitted it would be his "dream role" if it did happen.
"I think it would be amazing," he continued. "It's an amazing role, and an amazing show".
The musician played Ritchie Tozer in It's A Sin, which saw his character embracing London's vibrant gay scene.
Fans were hooked on the show and took to social media upon its release to admit they had "binged the entire series" in one go.
Channel 4 viewers opened up about how they were left "sobbing" by the ending of the series, which charts the early days of the HIV pandemic in Britain.
"I finished It’s a Sin last night… bawled my eyes out crying. Beautiful performances from the cast and exceptional writing as usual from Russell T. Davies," wrote one Twitter user.
