Katie Price wants to replace Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing

Katie Price has offered up her services to replace Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing.

We're not quite sure on her expertise, but Katie reckons she could step into Len's shoes on the BBC One show.


Len stepped down from Strictly Come Dancing ahead of last year’s series and as yet the BBC hasn’t chosen a replacement.

Katie put her name forward in a chat with the Daily Star: “I’d jump at the chance to be the judge on Strictly."

She added: “I haven’t had any offers, but I’m ready if they want me.”

Screen tests were reportedly held at the Strictly studio in Elstree last week with both some familiar and surprising faces - although Katie wasn't one of them.

The likes of pro dancers Anton Du Beke and Brendan Cole both tried out as did former professional former and It Takes Two regular Karen Hardy.

Others who auditioned included Ireland’s Dancing with the Stars judges Loraine Barry and Brian Redmond as well as Strictly's current head choreographer Jason Gilkison.

But The Sun newspaper reports that ballroom dancer Shirley Ballas - who's son Mark Ballas is a pro dancer on the American version of Strictly - proved to be the standout of the unaired try outs.

"Shirley had by far the best screen test and was a natural," a source told the newspaper. “Producers want her to replace Len because of her wealth of experience both in the dance world and already being a judge on the telly."


A spokesperson for the BBC said: "As yet no one has been offered the role of Strictly’s new judge.”

The new series of Strictly Come Dancing will air on BBC One later this year.
