The legendary film series could be about to make a comeback, 27 years later. 

On Monday, Daily Star pitched actress Emily Atack as the top candidate for Barbara Windsor’s iconic “good time girl” role in the film romps. 

Spotting the story in the newspaper, the 29-year-old beauty agreed that she would be a stellar fit for the role. 

Taking to Instagram, she shared a snap of the full-page spread in the newspaper, showing her face photoshopped onto a scene from Carry On Doctor. 

Giving it the thumbs up, she announced: “I’m in.” 

Britain’s Got Talent babe Amanda Holden agreed, commenting underneath: “I think this is perfect casting…”

Dame Barbara Windsor, 81, made a name for herself after appearing in nine Carry On films in the 60s and 70s. 

One of the most cherished characters in the series, she rose to fame thanks to her thigh-slapping comic timing. 

Carry On Camping, which was released in 1969, featured a famous scene in which her bikini top flew off while she was doing outdoor exercises. 

Just last week, mega-fan and film producer Brian Baker spent nearly £500,000 in order to buy the right to sell Carry On merchandise. 

Now, the 72-year-old hopes to flog enough Carry On paraphernalia to finance three new movies. 

He reportedly got his hands on scripts that never made it to the big screen, written by the films’ founder Peter Rogers before his death in 2009. 

Brian told Daily Star: “We’ll be bringing together a new team of actors with their own idiosyncrasies and personalities.

“They will be adapted to bring it up to modern times. We’ll have to be a bit more politically correct today.”

After cutting her teeth on major roles in Dad’s Army and the Inbetweeners, it seems that Emily could be the first name of many to grace the line-up of actors. 

Daily Star also pitched Danny Dyer to take on the parts of actor Sid James, and funnyman Alan Carr to replace Charles Hawtrey.
