Peter Crouch has landed his own talk show.
The 31-year-old footballer is hoping to interview his heroes - including Beady Eye rocker Liam Gallagher - for the programme, which is tentatively titled 'On The Couch with Peter Crouch' and will air on Sky.
A source said: "Peter is a smart guy and takes on the role of a chat show host well. He has a long list of people who he considered heroes, in comedy, music, food, you name it.
"The idea is he will go and visit people at their homes or workplaces and chat to them in a quirky way.
"It's more Ruby Wax than Michael Parkinson as it's supposed to be more of an entertainment show."
Insiders insist Peter has the perfect qualities to be a talk show host.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Peter has a good command of the English language and listens well - vital ingredients for this kind of show and not something many footballers have."
A pilot episode will be filmed in the next few weeks and the show will air later this year.
