Now that the Great British Bake Off line-up has finally been announced, our attentions have turned to who will replace Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing.
Throwing his hat into the ring? One Russell Brand.
Why not? That's what the comedian is saying after his friend Noel Fielding was confirmed as one of the new Bake Off hosts.
Right. If @noelfielding11 can do Bake Off I'm replacing Len on Strictly.- Russell Brand (@rustyrockets) March 17, 2017
"Right. If @noelfielding11 can do Bake Off I'm replacing Len on Strictly," he tweeted.
It seems Noel would be up for that idea.

Noel will be co-hosting with Sandi Toksvig when Bake Off kicks off on Channel 4, and he sounds like he's delighted with his new gig.
"GBBO is one of my favourite shows," he said in a statement. "I've always loved brightly coloured cakes and Sandi Toksvig so this is a dream come true for me! It's basically the double."
Sandi was just as complimentary about Noel.
"Noel Fielding is one of the nicest guys in showbusiness," she said. "The first time I met him I felt like I had met a rather wayward cousin whose take on the world made me laugh.
"The only downside is that he has much better dress sense than I do."
Prue Leith will also be replacing Mary Berry – after much speculation – joining Paul Hollywood as a judge.
The Great British Bake Off will air its first series on Channel 4 later this year.
