YOUTUBE star ‘Lord’ Aleem has spoken out over the rumours he could be in the running for a Top Gear host spot.
The wealthy self-styled Lord also revealed his dad still drives a 2004 Skoda, while he continues to build a collection of supercars.
Instagram Lord Aleem says he doesn’t want a job on Top Gear
He told the Birmingham Mail he doesn’t want a job on the BBC car show, despite many of his thousands of online followers suggesting he audition.
He said: “I never applied for Top Gear, I don’t know where people got those facts from.
“I think the current presenters are great and are doing a fantastic job. My life is Top Gear every day.”
The 23-year-old, whose real name is Aleem Iqbal, has 576,000 followers on Instagram and more than 336,000 subscribers on YouTube.

He describes himself on Twitter as a “petrolhead” and “award-winning entrepreneur” – and runs Birmingham-based Platinum Exective Travel with his father, Saleem, and hires out supercars.
He has a fleet of luxury cars including Ferraris, Rolls Royces and Lamborghinis.
The young businessman moved to London to study, and is now back in Solihull after completing his degree.
His grandfather used to work at the Royal Mint polishing coins and he described his dad as a “self-made man”.
He recently revealed that despite the collection of supercars at his disposal, his dad still drives an old Skoda.
The entrepreneur regularly offers his services doing charity work – recently he returned from a second trip to Lebanon to deliver food parcels to Syrian refugees.

He said: “I have been blessed with so much in life, I feel it is my duty to help those that are less fortunate,” he said.
“It is my responsibility to utilise the following I have to spread awareness on such issues and, if I can inspire even one person to give back, I am on the right track.”
Last year he was banned from driving his fleet of luxury cars for 12 months after being caught speeding in his Rolls Royce.
The businessman was found to have exceeded the speed limit on the M40 in Warwickshire in May.
The previous year he ‘cheated death’ in a crash which left two luxury cars mangled.
