"I haven't danced for maybe 15 years so I don't know if that means I have a bit of an advantage, but I would love it. If not, just for the glitz and glamour of it all. I absolutely love all the outfits. I always watch it and I just think they look like they're having such a good time. I love shows that the whole family can watch because I think they are a bit of a rarity now."

Gordon Ramsay is also keen, and told Radio Times: "I would love to do it, though. Secretly, I’d love to do it. I’ve always wanted to dance. There’s something so gorgeous about the rumba, the samba, the foxtrot, the tango. I don’t know. I may ask the BBC if I could do it next year."
