The 'Harry Potter' star - who is 3ft 6in tall - would love to turn his hand to hosting the TV programme, but he admitted he would like to turn the format on its head "a bit" to keep things fresh.

He's quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "I would like to do a chat show-esque programme.

"I don't mean sitting in the studio with guests, I want to flip it up a bit but would still chat to guests.

"'Small Talk With Warwick Davis', so I've got the name."

The 48-year-old star - who has also appeared in the 'Star Wars' saga in a number of roles - has hit out at cruel online trolls while suggesting it would be a "very different story" if they weren't hiding behind a keyboard.

He added: "As an actor it's very difficult, you put yourself on the line with every project that you do and it isn't fair when you take a battering on social media for a job that you were doing and that you did your best work in.

"I think people have got to understand that when you go into a movie or on a TV show you put yourself out there and if people could restrain themselves a little bit on the keyboard and think a little bit before they send that message, think about the people involved, because there is a person at the end of that."

Last year, the comedian suggested another career path as she admitted he would love to join Simon Cowell on the 'Britain's Got Talent' judging panel.

He previously said: " think nurturing new talent is great. I would be very realistic but encouraging too - however bonkers some of the acts are."
