    BBC Breakfast fans have called for Bank of Dave owner David Fishwick to take over the BBC presenting gig after brightening up 'Blue Monday'.

    David sat on the red sofa to speak to presenters Jon Kay and Sally Nugent about this new Netflix movie based on his life and work with the Bank of Dave.

    The Netflix movie is based on the true story of Dave's life and how he set up a loans company in his hometown Burnley and eventually became a self-made billionaire.

    As viewers listened to Dave boast about his Hollywood venture, they took to social media to ask producers for more of the Burnley native.

    "We all could all do with a little Dave in our lives ah #BBCBreakfast," one wrote.

    A second tweeted: "I think we need a dose of Dave from 'Bank of Dave' every Monday morning #BBCBreakfast #BankofDave."

    "Dave Fishwick and his Burnley premiere seem ace. #BBCBreakfast," a third wrote.

    Dave went on to explain that he'd insisted on filming taking place in Burnley, as well as the movie's premiere which he turned up to in one of his mini buses which he hires out to customers.

    The Netflix movie, out on 16th January, is set to star Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor and No Time To Die star Rory Kinnear, who's set to play Dave.

    In 2011, Dave set up his own bank in Burnley, Lancashire to help inject life into local businesses and prove that banks can be socially responsible by donating profits to charity.

    When he was starting out, Dave promised to give 5% interest on savings and then use that money to lend to people struggling to secure loans from the big banks.

    Dave then pledged that if after six months his local bank works, he'll do something the big banks "can't bring themselves to do" and give any profits to charity.

    He said: "If I can make £1 after all the bills are paid, my bank will be £2billion and one pound better off than the RBS, because they lost £2 billion."
