Blonde beauty Denise Van Outen has become the latest name linked to the Strictly Come Dancing 2012 line up.

The former West End singer will join the likes of Kimberley Walsh on the show when it launches next Saturday night on BBC One.

"Denise has loads of rhythm and she’s superfit so she should be a great contestant," a source told The Sun this morning. “She’s never done ballroom before but she’s certainly got the raw materials to wow on the dance floor.”

It's a return for Denise to BBC One, but this time she'll be the one being judged.

The performer was previously a panelist alongside Lord Webber on his reality talent shows Any Dream Will Do and How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria?

The source told the tabloid this morning: “Having been on the other side of the table, Denise will really want to impress the judges.”

Other stars rumoured to be on the line up include Olympian Victoria Pendleton and telly presenter Fern Britton.

Bosses have begun to confirm some of the names, with Dani Harmer and Nicky Byrne amongst those confirmed on the Strictly Come Dancing 2012 line up so far.

The Strictly Come Dancing launch show will air next Saturday from 6:30PM, where the celebrities will find out which dancers they've been partnered with.

They'll then have three weeks worth of training before the first live shows kick off on October 5.
