Gina Yashere on the set of the new Tesco Mobile ad

Gina Yashere would "absolutely love to" present 'The Gadget Show' because she is a self-confessed "gadget geek"

Gina Yashere wants to host 'The Gadget Show'.

The 39-year-old comedian - who is a regular on celebrity panel show 'Mock the Week' - is a self-confessed "gadget geek", and as a result she would love to turn her hand at presenting the Channel 5 technology programme.

Speaking from the set of the new Tesco Mobile ad, she exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I would love a talk show and I'd love a show about gadgets because I'm a techno enthusiast.

"I want to be on 'The Gadget Show'. I would absolutely love to do a show like that.

"My new favourite toy is my new phone. I'm a massive gadget geek."

While Gina has been busy with her new gadget and promoting the new Tesco Mobile campaign, she would love to do some acting again, but insists US sitcoms are currently outdoing their UK counterparts because they have much bigger teams of writers working on their programmes.

She added: "I loved doing 'Married Single Other', I definitely wouldn't say no to doing that again.

"But at the moment US sitcoms are smashing the UK. I love 'Modern Family'. They have a lot of people writing US sitcoms, teams of writers. It's not just one bloke in his house.

"They've got a much bigger attitude towards them."

Gina can make a joke out of anything. Unless that thing is Tesco Mobile. Why? Because there's nothing funny about Tesco Mobile. To check out exclusive behind the scenes footage from the new ad featuring Gina visit or follow @TescoMobile
