2015’s Strictly Come Dancing rumoured line-up also includes Michelle Heaton and ex-Eastender's star Shane Richie
We know you’re still downing Pimms after work and cracking open the BBQ at ever chance you get at the moment – and we don’t blame you – but we hate to break it to you that sooner or later, winter WILL be coming.
But never fear! Yes, the temperature may be dropping and we’ll have to dig out ALL of the layers to wrap up in again, but winter also means that we’ll be warmed up by the saucy sambas and shimmying sparkles of Strictly Come Dancing – hurrah!
So who could be stepping onto the dancefloor this year we hear you cry? Well, there’s quite a few of showbiz’s finest who are rumoured to don their sequins and slap on the fake tan…
Celebville’s all-round nice guy Peter Andre has made it clear just HOW much he wants to get his dancing shoes on, saying: ‘It’s one of the best shows on telly and I do love to dance’. That sounds like a good start! Although he shared that he’s ‘keen to give it a good when the time is right’, he’s not so sure he’ll ‘be able to pull off the Lycra outfits and sequins though!’ Well, if your Mysterious Girl video is anything to go by, we’re sure you’ll have no problem pulling off a bit of sparkle!
Michelle Heaton is another celeb who’s also a keen bean when it comes to taking part on the show. After going through a rough few years, she’d love to feel like a woman again. ‘It’s my dream show. It’s every girl’s dream to do a show that makes you feel really glam and special.’ And even though Michelle thinks she’s got ‘a rather slim chance because everyone wants to do it but you never know’, we think that Michelle would be fab sashaying across the dance floor!
And she’s not the only Michelle rumoured to do the show! With hubby Mark Wright lighting the dance floor last year, rumours about his other half Michelle Keegan taking part this year, have been spreading like wildfire. So much so that she’s already a favourite to win the whole thing! If her Dirty Dancing-esque wedding photos with Mark are anything to go by, then we’ll be in for a treat! Hinting that she’s got ‘something in the pipeline for the beginning of Autumn’ but nothing’s been signed yet, everything sounds promising! Although, she did admit that it was hard watching her hubby on the show: ‘I remember seeing how nervous he was and thinking “If he’s like that, I just couldn’t do it”.’ We believe in you Mich!
If Strictly don’t land Michelle Keegan though, they could bag Corrie companion, Georgia May Foote. Or maybe soap-star Shane Richie could follow in his Eastenders buddy, Jake Wood’s footsteps and shake what his mama gave him on the show. We sense a twerk-off on the horizon…
Other celebs who have been whispered to take part on the BBC show include superstar singer Jamelia, Dermot O Leary and Gordon Ramsay.
With us bound to miss Dermot’s weekly swishy spin on The X Factor now, and witnessing some of the moves he busted out for a 24 hour dance-a-thon to raise money for Comic Relief, we’d definitely be more than happy to see him no our screens again. He’s shot down any rumours of him taking part, but we’ve got our fingers crossed on seeing the cheeky chappy’s tight trousers.
As for Gordan, he’s not said anything about taking part on the show, but we would just LOVE to see how he’d hold his temper with his dance teacher. We’ll be taking cover under the comfort of our sofas.
We’ve got our glitzy shoes and gladrags at the ready and can’t WAIT to find out the announced line-up!
