Former Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh ‘turns down Strictly Come Dancing’

Millie Mackintosh has reportedly turned down Strictly Come Dancing.


Model Millie appeared on Made In Chelsea between 2011 and 2013 before leaving to launch a fashion and make up chain.

According to The Sun newspaper, this year the model was invited to take part in Strictly because of her friendship with Meghan Markle.

The tabloid reports that Strictly bosses are keen to get someone with a ‘Royal link’ to soon-to-be-newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan.

A source said: “Producers know the public have been captivated by Meghan and want to capitalise on this.”

However, Millie is said to have turned down the offer.

Strictly Come Dancing’s 2018 series still has a while to go before launching but already a number of celebs have been linked to the series.


Names Strictly Come Dancing bosses could sign include X Factor star turned TV host Rylan Clark-Neal, football pundit Chris Kamara and Radio DJ Maya Jama.

Further rumoured celebs include soap stars Chelsea Halfpenny and Hayley Tamaddon plus breakfast TV presenters Piers Morgan and Dan Walker, who front ITV’s Good Morning Britain and BBC’s Breakfast respectively.

2015 Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussein Hollyoaks star turned Oscar winner Rachel Shenton and The Chase’s Mark Labbett have also been tipped to take part in Strictly Come Dancing, alongside former England footballer David James and Actress Michelle Keegan.


Strictly Come Dancing will begin on BBC One in the autumn.

The line up is typically confirmed around August/September
