Is Bradley Walsh the new Doctor Who companion? One UK tabloid seems to think

They then added that Bradley will probably be cutting down on some of his hosting duties for ITV in order to dedicate his time to the cult BBC show.

Cash Trapped is now airing weekdays at 5pm on ITV, filling in while The Chase takes a well-earned summer break.

However, reports from The Mirror are suggesting that the coveted role of the Doctor's new assistant will be going to none other than Bradley Walsh.

Bradley Walsh would certainly be considered an unconventional choice for a Doctor Who companion given that he's now known primarily as a game show host.

Originally from Watford, Walsh was formerly in Coronation Street and was on ITV's Law and Order UK for eight seasons.

This comes after Jodie - who also worked with Chris on "Broadchurch" - was appointed as the first ever female lead in "Doctor Who" as a replacement for current Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi.

Last month, it was revealed that Jodie Whittaker was to become the first female Doctor Who.

Traditionally, the Doctor's companion travels through space and time with the Doctor, sharing all their adventures, and occasionally helping them out of tricky situations.

Apparently, a source told The Mirror that Bradley is "super excited to be joining the cast of Doctor Who in such a key role".

A BBC spokesman refused to comment on the Walsh speculation.

One person who does very much seem to approve of the idea of Walsh as a new companion is Matt Lucas, who played Nardole on this past season of the show.

In recent years, the Doctor's sidekick has been a young woman, with Billie Piper and Jenna Coleman both spending time in the TARDIS. He loves that show with a passion and so do the audience so he's delighted to have found a way to make it all work together'.
