Footballer Frank Lampard has been rumoured for the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 cast.

The ex Chelsea player is reportedly on a wish list of stars wanted by BBC bosses for this year's show.


If he does end up taking to the dancefloor, Frank will be following in the footsteps of wife Christine Bleakley.

Good Morning Britain host Christine appeared on Strictly back in 2008 where she finished the show in 5th place.

Could Frank do better?

"It’s the time of the year when the wish list is being drawn up and Frank Lampard is one of the names that ticks all the boxes," a source told The Sun newspaper. “They would love to have him on board so we will see how things progress in the coming weeks.

“He has impressed people with his hilarious appearances on Play To The Whistle and comes across as a natural for a big TV series like Strictly.”

Strictly Come Dancing will be back on BBC One later this year.

Other celebs rumoured already include Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill, Paralympian Ellie Simmonds, actress Carley Stenson and comic Joel Dommett.


EastEnders actress Samantha Womack is also reportedly on the 'wish list' of stars for Strictly Come Dancing 2017, alongside her former co-star Rita Simons.

The on screen sisters had appeared on the BBC One soap for years but were both killed off on New Year’s Day in a shock story line.
