Strictly Come Dancing star Lisa Riley has said she wants to star as the next Bond girl!

The former Emmerdale actress, who played Mandy Dingle in the ITV1 series, said she would like to appear alongside Bond actor Daniel Craig in the next film.

Lisa asked fellow Strictly contestant, and Daybreak's Showbiz correspondent Richard Arnold, to talk to Skyfall director Sam Mendes.

Lisa tweeted Richard at the Skyfall premiere in London earlier this week: “Does he want a fat girl who’s light on her feet in his next movie?? ASK HIM!!!”

Meanwhile, in other Strictly news, professional dancer Vincent Simone has revealed he's been getting "stalkerish" fanmail!

The ballroom star, partnered with Tracy Beaker actress Dani Harmer, told TV Magazine this week: "I have some stalkerish stuff. There is a girl who turned up at our hotel when we were on tour and then every time we arrived somewhere she would be there. I went to Sainsbury’s in the morning, she was there and came over and said: 'I’m really sorry, I know you have a girlfriend but here’s my number.' She still keeps coming to the show. It’s weird."

Strictly Come Dancing returns this weekend on Saturday 27th October at 6.30pm for Strictly’s spooktacular Halloween special with the results show on Sunday 28th October at 7.20pm on BBC One and BBC One HD.
