The 30-year-old actor admitted it would be "amazing" to be the Fourteenth Doctor when Jodie Whitaker departs the role, but he is remaining coy over speculation that he has been approached for the coveted part.

Speaking on 'Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden', he said: "I mean, if I was do you think I’d be able to tell you? It’s true I am very indiscreet but my lips are sealed.

"I think it would be amazing. It’s an amazing role, and an amazing show."

It comes after former 'Doctor Who' screenwriter Russell T Davies - who created Channel 4 drama 'It's A Sin', in which Olly stars as Ritchie Tozer - suggested the singer-and-actor could be a great Time Lord.

He said: "Olly would make a marvellous 'Doctor Who'."

Olly previously explained he wants to play someone on screen with magical powers, saying: “I do want to play someone with magic powers. So I definitely am open to being, like, a sexy gay witch.”

And asked if Olly's ambition might lure Russell back to genre television, the 57-year-old screenwriter said: “Well, that might change my mind actually.

"If I could think of an ‘Olly with magical powers’ show that’d be good.”

What's more, John Barrowman - who recently returned as Captain Jack Harkness - also threw his support behind the 'It's A Sin' star potentially being cast as the next Time Lord.

He gushed: "Olly would be amazing! He's a lovely actor and I think he would make a wonderful Doctor."
