Billie Eilish reveals her pick for the next James Bond

The singer-songwriter recorded the theme for the new 007 film, No Time To Die.

Billie Eilish has tipped Michael B Jordan to be the next James Bond.

The 18-year-old singer-songwriter, who recorded the theme for the latest instalment in the British spy series, named the Black Panther star during an appearance on Capital Breakfast.

It would make Jordan, 33, the first American and first black man to portray 007 in the official film franchise.

Asked who she thought should take over from Daniel Craig, Eilish said: “Honestly, Michael B Jordan would kill that shit … I think he would kill it.”

Craig is bowing out in No Time To Die, his fifth and final Bond film.

Actors including James Norton, Tom Hiddleston, Sam Heughan, Richard Madden, Henry Cavill, Henry Golding and Idris Elba are also in the mix to replace him.

Eilish also quipped that Capital Breakfast host Roman Kemp could be the next Bond.

“I will take that,” he said before the American teenager could retract her words.

Eilish debuted No Time To Die live during Tuesday’s Brit Awards, also winning the gong for best international female solo artist.

She wrote the song alongside her brother and co-writer, Finneas O’Connell, as well as Hans Zimmer and Johnny Marr.
