Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins has spoken about rumours she's set for Strictly Come Dancing 2017.

The TV host could follow in the footsteps of co star Susanna Reid who finished as runner up on the show in 2013.


Quizzed on the speculation at the Good Morning Britain Health Star Awards, Charlotte wasn't giving anything away.

She said: "I watched Susanna [on Strictly], it was amazing. I would be terrified because I don't know if my dancing is up to it."

Charlotte explained: "I did do a charity dance thing before. It's the most scary thing!

"You'd think working in live TV you would be used to this sort of thing, but I think it's very different when people are looking at your feet instead of thinking about what you're saying."

Charlotte joins an ever-growing list of rumoured celebs for Strictly 2017.

Comic Tommy Cannon has also been tipped to join the show and at 78, he'd be the show's oldest ever contestant.

Other names tipped for this year's cast are Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker, Olympic gymnast Max Whitlock, footballer Frank Lampard and Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill.

There's also Paralympian Ellie Simmonds, actress Carley Stenson and comic Joel Dommett.

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


However no names are officially confirmed yet and won't be until the autumn.

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