The greatest actor to ever pull on a pair of red Speedos is back – in a big movie remake of Baywatch.

Here at Ginger Clam HQ there’s nothing in the world that could fill us with more excitement (except maybe sprinkling itching powder on Oprah Winfrey’s beaver, but that’s never likely to happen).

Yes folks – David Hasselhoff is officially to join the cast of the new Baywatch blockbuster, which will cost gazillions and will also star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

The Hoff’s trouser wanger may be a little older than back in the day, but we’re sure that when it comes filling a pair of beach shorts he’s still got a fine BSD (big swinging dick).

The Rock broke the important news on social media, telling fans: “There is no Bay without The Hoff. Baywatch, get ready world.”

Hasselhoff responded by saying: “I was born ready.”

Lock and load, big guy. Lock and load.
