Ross in new jibe on Sachs.

Byline: By SEAN HAMILTON Showbiz Editor

JONATHAN Ross wants Russell Brand to be the next Doctor Who - so he can go back in time and steal actor Andrew Sachs's phone.

Posting online from his Florida holiday home on Boxing Day, the pounds 6million-a-year TV presenter joked about his suspension by the BBC.

Ross, off air for leaving vile messages on 78-year-old Sachs's voicemail during Brand's Radio 2 show, posted the comment on messaging website Twitter.

Under the name "Wossy", he wrote: "Russell Brand for the new Doctor! He could go back in time and steal Manuel's ansaphone. His companion would have to be a strong woman. Helen Mirren or Germaine Greer or Maggie Smith. I bet the f***ers will get Timothy Spall to play me."

Ross is due back on his Friday night TV show on January 24. Brand resigned from his show.
