A Petition Has Been Launched To Make Chris Eubank The Next James Bond

A Petition Has Been Launched To Make Chris Eubank The Next James Bond

Former WBO middleweight champion Chris Eubank Sr. is being backed to become the next James Bond.

After a few appearances on Celebrity Gogglebox people now seem to think that Eubank would be perfect for the role.

And fans are so set on the idea that a petition has been created on Change.org to try and rally the suggestion.

"Chris Eubank is not only a national treasure but also one who has seen action for most of his life, and his larger-than-life personality would be perfect as the next James Bond," it reads.

Over 600 people have already signed the petition at the time of writing.

Twitter account @NoContextEubank tweeted about the idea and it quickly received thousands of likes.

The tweet has since amassed 1,000 retweets and around 2,700 likes with people backing the petition and others saying he would be better suited to a villain in the films.

One person said: "Finally a petition I can get behind," while a second added: "Behind this 100%".

Someone else commented saying: "YES!" Before adding: "On reflection, I reckon he'd make the perfect Bond villain." Another said: "That would make me actually watch James Bond..."

Commenting on the official petition, one fan wrote: "Chris is not only a legend in the entertainment world, but also a fighting hero, making him a great candidate to be the next bond".

Another commented: "As someone said, he has massive charisma and style, plus he is the perfect gent."

A third said: "Not only is the man a sporting icon and national hero, he is one tough MF who could convince as a cold blooded killer. DO IT!"

Just days ago it was reported that Lashana Lynch is set to take over the iconic code name 007 in the forthcoming Bond 25.

Speaking to the Mail On Sunday, a film insider has revealed the 31-year-old will be introduced during a 'pivotal' scene - but fans of the franchise needn't worry, James Bond will still be there.

They said: "There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says, 'Come in 007,' and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.

"It's a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he's been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.

"Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don't work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning."
