The 37-year-old Olympian would like to have a go at running the iconic Queen Vic pub on the BBC soap after he takes on the Tokyo Olympics next year.

He told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: “I would love to do it - imagine me running the Queen Vic.

"I am a massive 'EastEnders' fan, but I need to get a couple of gold medals before I do any of that.”

It comes after Mo struck up a friendship with former 'EastEnders' star Shane Richie during their stint on 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'.

The 56-year-old actor - who played Alfie Moon - revealed the Olympic legend is a huge fan of the show and he thinks Mo has what it takes to be a new regular in Walford, after he taught the runner how to walk and talk like the soap's Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden).

He said on the ITV show: "He’s moving along nicely with the East End accent. I reckon if we’re here for another couple of days, he could be a new reg in the Queen Vic."

Mo was delighted with his 'EastEnders' lesson from Shane, adding: "I learned some more cockney from Alfie. I just remember Phil Mitchell telling someone off or him not being happy with someone."

Shane walked around the camp's fire shouting out lines Phil might say, and Mo followed behind repeating them.

They included: "Alfie - this is my manor!"

The soap star later jokingly told Steve to "watch out" because Mo could be after his role.

Shane added: "If Steve McFadden is watching, Steve, you’ve got someone on your tails here mate. "He could be a new Mitchell brother coming in … watch out."
