Nigel Farage has been tipped to join the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 line up later this year.

After Ed Balls' classic run on this year's show, the former UKIP leader could be next to show off his dance skills.


Speaking about Ed's success, and rumours he could be next, Farage said last year: "He did so brilliantly - so, so brilliantly - that I wouldn’t rule anything out.”

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I’ve had plenty of offers, I just couldn’t do any of them right now.”

Now Strictly's producer has teased we could see Nigel on this year's line up.

Vinnie Shergill told the Daily Express: "I give nothing away. It’s wonderful when there’s speculation in the papers, speculation in the last couple of months but I don’t want to ruin any surprises. You’ll have to wait and see.”

She added: "I just think when I absolutely want somebody I’m not too proud to ask again. I’m not too proud to beg either."

The BBC has said that no names have been confirmed yet for the new series of Strictly but there have been plenty of rumours.

Some of the most recent names tipped for this year's cast are Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker.

Other celebs rumoured already include Olympic gymnast Max Whitlock, footballer Frank Lampard, 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.

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