New Film 2010 host, Claudia Winkleman has said that she would welcome a guest appearance from Mark Kermode.

Kermode was widely tipped to replace Jonathan Ross as the host of the movie show despite repeatedly denying it on Twitter and stating on Radio 5 that he didn’t have the “mainstream sensibilities” to be the front for the show. It’s a shame because here at OTB, we can’t think of anyone better.

Speaking to The Times, Winkleman said, “I think [Mark] didn’t want it because he said himself they’d go for someone more mainstream.

“It’s not just going to be me on there. There will be other, brilliant – not that I’m not brilliant – film critics, all kinds of fantastic people, really clever film people. Different, exciting guests. I’d love him to be there.”

We’re still unsure about Winkleman’s posting – she’s definitely not who we’d pick for the role but time will tell what the new film 2010 will bring.
