Olly Murs has joked he's available to present Top Gear.

The 'Heart Skips A Beat' singer is a huge fan of the BBC motoring programme and told ITV's Loose Women he'd be only too happy to step into the shoes vacated by Jeremy Clarkson.

Olly said: "If they need a presenter I'm around, I'm on tour at the moment but you can have me!"

It was announced yesterday that BBC had dropped Clarkson from the show after it emerged he'd had a fracas with a producer that ended with the producer driving himself to A&E.

There has now been a lot of speculation about who – if anybody – can replace the outspoken host.

"I saw that Chris Evans was linked to it and I think he'd be amazing because he loves cars," said Olly, although he might he sad to hear Chris has already brushed off the job.

BBC has committed to the future of Top Gear but Olly said if it does end, there is one silver lining… he's currently at the top of the 'Star In A Reasonably Priced Car' list!

"We don't know if that's going to come back so I might be reigning champion forever!" he joked. "I'm a big Top Gearfan, I don't know the ins and the outs of [what happened], aside from everything that's gone on.

"I love Top Gear, love Clarkson, love all the guys. I'm a bit of a petrol head so I love watching the show, obviously it's a shame but these things happen don't they? I'd love the show to stay, I think that it should continue, definitely."
