The hit TV show was previously presented by Paul O'Grady - who died in March, aged 67 - and Will has revealed that he'd jump at the opportunity to host the programme.

Asked about the possibility during an appearance on 'Lorraine', Will replied: "Oh my god, I'd love to do that.

"That's so weird that you just said that because literally, Paul - who is doing my hair and make-up today - said: 'You should do Paul O'Grady ... that show, 'For the Love of Dogs'.'"

The show celebrates the work of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, and Will revealed that he actually lives very close by.

The 44-year-old singer - who won 'Pop Idol' in 2002 - said: "You know, I live in Battersea as well. Yeah. There we go - there's our pitch. I'd love to do it."

On the other hand, Amanda Holden is reportedly being lined up to host 'For the Love of Dogs'.

The 52-year-old star is supposedly seen by TV bosses as the ideal successor to Paul.

An insider told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column: "Execs just feel like it’s too soon to make firm plans about the series, as it’s barely been two months since he died. But the feeling at the home is that it’s what Paul would have wanted.

"After all, he cared deeply about the animals in Battersea.

"Amanda is the natural choice to take over the job, not just because she’s a seasoned presenter but because she also cares about the home and would do anything for them."
