Jane McDonald stunned as Rylan Clark calls for her to be made a dame

She'll hopefully catch the Queen's eye at her Platinum Jubilee concert

Jane McDonald looked stunned as The One Show‘s Rylan Clark called for her to be made a dame on the show last night (February 18).

The cruise-loving star was on the show with Rylan and co-host Alex Jones to chat about her new Channel 5 show Jane McDonald’s Yorkshire.

However, Rylan took the opportunity to declare not once but twice that he would love Jane to become a dame.

And, we have to admit, we are more than on board with the idea!

We love you Jane! Get that Damehood please!

Rylan said: “We love you Jane!”

As the camera panned to Jane on Zoom, Rylan declared to the stunned star: “Get that Damehood please!”

What else happened on The One Show?

Later on in the show, Rylan appeared delighted as Jane confirmed that she would be ending episodes of Jane McDonald’s Yorkshire with a song.

As a laughing Jane listened on, he declared: “Queen of Yorkshire and should be Dame Jane McDonald!”

Jane’s role in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The singer has the chance to impress the Queen this summer, as she takes part in her Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Jane will play an outdoor show at Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre over the bank holiday weekend in June.

She’ll be joined by “special guests” during the live show, held to recognise the Queen becoming the first British Monarch to celebrate 70 years of service.

In return, could the monarch recognise Jane’s services to showbiz?

We most certainly hope so!
