Electric guitar player Jimmy Page is being sought after to appear on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.

Fearne Cotton this week took over from Jo Whiley on the daily music programme, which is set to feature acts such as Mika and Shakira.

However, the new host has admitted that the Led Zeppelin star is at the top of her wishlist of prospective performers.

Speaking to the Mirror, she said getting the legendary electric guitar player to appear would be a "dream".

Cotton also highlighted Kings of Leon as another one of her targets, saying they would be "incredible".

The presenter added that the Live Lounge is a "really integral part" of Radio 1 and offers "live music at its best".

Page is currently promoting his new movie documentary It Might Get Loud, which charts the history of the electric guitar and includes contributions from Jack White of The White Stripes and The Edge from U2.
