The creators of Outlander have called for singer Pink to record a version of the show's theme tune 'Sky Boat Song' after she revealed she was a huge fan of the series.

The US singer spoke to radio hosts Boogie and Arlene, who present Forth 1, and as Arlene told Pink she was 'fan girling' over her, the singer admired the presenter's Scottish accent.

She said: "I don't wanna talk I just wanna listen to you guys talk for ten minutes.

"I'm obsessed with Outlander, which is probably very annoying to you, ugh I love it! I wish I had that accent."

And when the Outlander team heard this news, they were quick to take to Twitter.

Posting, they said: "I'll just be here willing @Pink 's rendition of The Skye Boat Song into the world... #Outlander."

And fans couldn't agree more.

One wrote: "A whole universe of #Outlander fans would buy a copy of @Pink singing the Skye Boat Song can we get this hashtag trending please #[email protected]@[email protected]_DG can you all get behind this please."

Another added: "lets petition for it - Outlander and @Pink - 2 of my favourites. Pink was the first real (other than XFactor) concert I took my daughter to."

One penned: "PLEASE record the Skye Boat song Pink!!!! I LOVE Pink and her bold sassiness!! I will forever remember the acrobatic performance during the Grammys!! So genius!! C'mon Pink...we OL fans will wait for your rendition!! Wootwoot!!"

And one wrote: "Well let’s see, Pink Has a magnificent voice and so talented, and an Obsessed Outlander Fan! Duh!!!!!! A no-brainer."

The Outlander theme tune, The Skye Boat song has an interesting history behind it.

The tale behind how it came to be theme song to one of the world's most famous television series is no less fascinating than that of the flamboyant character it was written about.

The original lyrics were written by Englshman Sir Harold Boulton in 1870 to a song collected by Scottish musician Anne Campbelle MacLeod.

The words tell the tale of Prince Charles Edward Stuart's journey as he fled the field of Culloden in 1746 where his Jacobite army had just been routed by Government forces.

The Bonnie Prince, now dressed as a serving maid, escaped from the island of Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides to Skye with the help of Flora MacDonald.

Hugely popular at the time, the lyrics were changed again when they were re-written by Robert Louis Stevenson, author of Treasure Island and Kidknapped.

So how did the tune become featured on Outlander?

The Skye Boat Song not only became the theme but was also the reason that show composer Bear McCreary believes he got the job.

After working together on Battlestar Galactica, Bear said that Ronald D. Moore reached out to him about a new show called Outlander.

When he explained that it was about Jacobites, Bear joked that he was delighted as he'd studied Jacobite music all through High School.

After sending Ron an instrumental of the Skye Boat Song as a kind of audition, Ron quipped that he may even have found the show's opening song.

Bear also joked that Ron was delighted to have found one other person (other than author Diana Gabaldon of course) who knew what a Jacobite was.
