JLS' Ortise Williams and Westlife's Brian McFadden are set for ITV's new dancing show, Stepping Out.

The show - which still has a working title - will see famous celebs competing in a weekly Strictly Come Dancing style dance show.

But in a twist, rather than dancing with professional partners, they'll take to the dance floor with their real life girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands or wives.

The series is set to launch next month and will overlap the return of Strictly later in the year.

JLS' Ortise, who had to turn down Strictly due to clashes with JLS' tour in December, is said to have signed up with girlfriend Aimee Jade.

Ex-Westlife singer Brian McFadden and wife Vogue Williams are also tipped to take part in the line up, according to the Daily Star.

Others approached by TV bosses are said to include Dempsey and Makepeace stars Michael Brandon and Glynis Barber, as well as former Celebrity Big Brother housemate and Loose Women presenter Denise Welch and her new husband Lincoln Townley.

A spokesperson for ITV branded the names "pure speculation".
