Swimming sensation Rebecca Adlington says Strictly Come Dancing is the only other reality show she wants to take part in.

Well, as soon as she's cleared time for its rigorous training schedule.


Although the two-time Olympic gold medallist has taken part in multiple TV shows, she is yet to take to the Strictly dancefloor.

But Rebecca has admitted that she's up for joining the BBC favourite, as soon as her two-year-old daughter has grown up a bit.

Speaking to the Metro, she said: "Strictly is the only one I’d do now, but it is a demanding show and difficult with kids and work, but maybe when Summer is older."

Since she retired from swimming in 2013, Rebecca has braved the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle and notoriously risky winter sports competition The Jump.

She will next be seen on Celebrity Masterchef, competing against the likes of Rachel Stevens, Vic Reeves and Ulrika Jonsson.

"I had the best time. John Torode and Gregg Wallace were lovely," she said of the cooking contest, which is due to begin on BBC One next month.

"I was really thrown in the deep end though – it was crazy."

Rebecca isn't the only famous face who's expressed an interest in Strictly recently.


EastEnders legend Ross Kemp recently threw his hat in to the ring for the show, having turned down a previous series.

Strictly will return to our screens in a matter of weeks, with Matt Goss, Paula Radcliffe and Alexandra Burke among the names rumoured for this year's line-up.
