Daily Star Spreads Doctor Who's Most Ridiculous Rumour

With the announcement of Matt Smith's departure, there has been much speculation about who will be the next Doctor. With betting shops spouting ridiculous suggestions of generic famous actors, the newspapers have gone one better with this headline, printed on the first page of the Daily Star.

The newspaper followed the half-witted headline with these details:
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 wanna be The Doctor. They said any age and gender, right?” 
Last night bookies Paddy Power gave odds of 18-1.
Yesterday she was flooded with support urging her to audition for Doctor Who, which is screened in the US.
Skater Girl tweeted: “OMFG PARIS I LOVE YOU FOR THIS THE DOCTOR!!!! YOU’LL BE THE 12th DOCTOR.” 
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.”
What do you think?
