Bradley Walsh is one busy man!

Not only does he host the popular game show The Chase and stars alongside his son in Breaking Dad, but he could also have a new gig lined up.

BBC is rebooting the show Blankety Blank - which was a hit in the '80s - and according to reports, the 60-year-old has been shoulder-tapped to host the series.

An insider reportedly told The Sun: "Blankety Blank was massive for the BBC and revisiting it seemed like a great idea in the current climate.

"Bradley is the favourite to be the new host but bosses behind the reboot also have discussed Paddy McGuinness and Rylan Clark as potential hosts.

"A pilot is being filmed later this year and, if it's a success, it'll go on to become a new series. Everyone is confident it'll be a hit and it's a perfect fit for Saturday night."

Blankety Blank is a comedy game show which sees two contestants trying to match the answers of celebrity panellists on fill-in-the-blank statements.

The game show was fronted by Sir Terry Wogan from 1979-1983 before Les Dawson took up the reigns. The show was revived in the late 1990s, and again from 2001-2002.

If Bradley gets the job, we're crossing our fingers the show comes to New Zealand shores!
