Mollie King has revealed she thinks she should be one of the new hosts of 'Top Gear' alongside Jeremy Clarkson's replacement, Chris Evans

Mollie King wants to join Chris Evans on 'Top Gear'.

The Saturdays singer has admitted she thinks she'd be the "perfect" choice to co-host the motoring show alongside the BBC Radio 2 DJ.

The 28-year-old beauty told the latest issue of Notion magazine: "I think I should be one of the next 'Top Gear' presenters. Think about it, it's perfect. Nobody would see it coming. Women are obviously better drives than men, for a start; so I'd be bringing skill, but I think that show needs a bit of girl power."

Chris was announced as the new host of 'Top Gear' after Jeremy Clarkson was sacked for punching a producer earlier this year, and as his co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May have decided to join him on a new car show for Amazon Prime, Chris is now putting together his own team of presenters.

The flame-haired star previously revealed he would definitely consider hiring a female co-presenter, but only if she was right for the job.

Asked if he would bring a woman on board, he said: "Absolutely. But not for the sake of it. I can confirm that definitely 100 per cent."

Speaking about the qualities he's looking for in a co-host, he added: "I want to have people who are knowledgeable about cars, people who have great energy, good timing, who are keen to do things differently."

The new issue of Notion magazine is out this week.
