Little Mermaid fans really want Gordon Ramsay to play Chef Louis in the new remake

A natural choice.

Details of a new Little Mermaid film have been swirling for weeks and now one non-actor is being tipped for a role.

Fans are demanding that Gordon Ramsay be cast as Chef Louis in the live-action remake.

Those of us who grew up with the classic animated The Little Mermaid will remember him as the aggressive French cook who tries to boil Sebastian the crab.

Notoriously aggressive TV chef Gordon is Twitter's first choice for the part after one fan floated the idea on the platform.

Others immediately got very excited by the idea.

The original tweet has generated serious buzz - but looks like we won't get to see Gordon Ramsay singing in a French accent after all.

He responded to the speculation last night, quipping that his acting chops aren't up to scratch.

It was announced last week that Halle Bailey would be playing the role of Ariel in the new film.

Melissa McCarthy is thought to be in talks to play sea witch Ursula.
