Dizzee Rascal could be set to star in a sitcom written by the creators of The Inbetweeners.

Writers Damon Beesley and Iain Morris have already started talks with the rapper over the sitcom, which would be based around his life.

A source told The Sun: "Damon and Iain like the idea of making a funny show about a rapper. Urban artists are usually portrayed in negative or bleak circumstances, but they want to do something different."

They added: "Dizzee is a big personality with loads of charisma and the writers think he would be the ideal subject for the show. It's just a question of whether or not he has the acting ability to pull it off."

Dizzee has previously talked about his acting ambitions, even revealing that he wouldn't mind being the first black James Bond. "Why not?" he said last year. "I can rock a tuxedo. The whole nation’s seen that. I’ve just got to get my lines right, that’s all."
