Jamie Redknapp wants a role in "Bodyguard".

The former football star turned sports pundit has "often fancied" turning his hand to acting and quipped he'd be better than the show's leading star Richard Madden, who plays Principal Protection Officer Sergeant David Budd.

Jamie told the Daily Star newspaper: "Audition for the next series of the Bodyguard? Why not? I'd be better than the other fella anyway. I've actually often fancied a bit of acting."

Meanwhile, Richard previously admitted he almost quit acting after making "Bodyguard" and he needed to take some time out to remember why he was passionate about his career.

He said: "It really took it out of me. I didn't get to see my friends, my family, do anything. It's a relentless job, it's an unhappy place. At the end of filming I had just gone, "What am I doing this for? I'm supposed to be doing the thing I love." I had to take a break for a couple of months and get myself back. And after I did get myself back a bit in my head, then you're like, "OK.""

"Bodyguard" - which also starred Keeley Hawes - was initially planned to be a one-off drama, but following its huge success, a second season was commissioned and Richard recently teased that producers are planning to "create something different" although his "fascinating" character will still be "part of the story".

He said: "We hadn't intended to make a second one but the character is so fascinating. We want to create something different and do justice to season one. I will be part of the story. I want it to be as exciting as season one and to show something new."
