Strictly Come Dancing 2012 may only just have finished, but planning for next year is apparently already underway - with Pippa Middleton said to be the 'top target' for its line-up.

According to The Sun, BBC chiefs hope the Duchess of Cambridge's sister will reconsider after she turned down an offer in 2011 in the midst of Royal Wedding fever.

The newspaper's source - who claimed that Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are fans of the show - said: "It is universally viewed as tasteful so there is very little stopping Pippa.

"Bosses will be very keen to get her, but they approach a lot of people every year."

However, a spokesperson for the broadcaster denied the speculation, insisting that they have yet to approach anyone to take part.

Judge Bruno Tonioli previously expressed his desire to get Pippa on the dancefloor, telling the Daily Record: "I would love to see Pippa on the show. She has great buttocks and would look amazing in the dresses.

"I’ve been dying to get a Royal on the show for years."

Olympic gymnast Louis Smith was crowned the winner of Strictly's tenth series on Saturday.
