McFly have been approached to front their own Saturday night variety show.
Both the BBC and ITV have reportedly expressed an interest in the 'Star Girl' hitmakers - made up of Dougie Poynter, Harry Judd, Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones - in the hope of capitalising on the success of Harry's victory on 'Strictly Come Dancing' and Dougie being crowned King of the Jungle on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
An insider told the Daily Mail newspaper: "There has been significant interest from the main broadcasters and a number of production companies about a show."
Harry has previously claimed none of the other members of McFly could have been as successful on 'I'm A Celeb' as Dougie, as his bandmate's "funny and quirky" qualities would always win over viewers.
He said: "None of us could have done 'I'm A Celebrity' but Dougie. He's the shyest, but once you get to know him, he's so funny and quirky. He's very endearing as a person.
"'Strictly' suits me because I work hard, and I'm probably the best dancer out of all of us."
