JACKO'S GIRL: OMG...I wannabe Dr Who!


WACKO Michael Jackson's daughter Paris has been lined up to be the next Doctor Who.

The 15-year-old tweeted her job application to the BBC after becoming a massive fan.

The wannabe actress has backing from Hollywood agent Rick Yorn who signed her up in April.

Yorn is said to be determined to make her a major star like his other clients Leonardo DiCaprio, 38, and Cameron Diaz, 40.

Schoolgirl Paris tweeted a snap of the Tardis, saying: "Omg I warma be The Doctor. They said any age and gender, right?"

Last night bookies Paddy Power gave odds of 18-1. She is up against the likes of Skyfall actor Rory Kinnear, 35, to take over when current Time Lord Matt Smith, 30, leaves in December.

Paris bagged her first major role in fantasy film Lundon's Bridge And The Three Keys, out later this year. The teen wants to break out of her late dad's shadow.

She added: "I want to show I do have talent and I can make it if I try. I want to be my own person." Yesterday she was flooded with support urging her to audition for Doctor Who, which is screened in the US.


And Amrai wrote: "You would be awesome." Paris would be the first woman to play the Doctor, as well as the youngest by 15 years.

Sources close to the show said the next star could be announced as early as next month.

A BBC spokeswoman said: "I'm afraid I can't give you any idea on who they're looking for and if Paris would fit the role."
