Strictly Come Dancing: Fabrice Muamba will keep dancing!

Fabrice Muamba

Football star Fabrice Muamba has hinted he'll be joining Strictly Come Dancing for a full series next year after his success in the Christmas special.

Fabrice, partnered with pro Aliona Vilani, scored an impressive 35 points with his Salsa, and producers apparently want him back.

A source said earlier this year: “Fabrice is a lovely and amazing guy.

“He got the audience on their feet and seemed to love the roar of the crowd, perhaps it reminded him of his days on the pitch.

“We would love to have him back on Strictly in the future.”

Head Strictly judge Len Goodman seemed thrilled with the sportsman's moves, telling him on the Christmas special: "I’m going to call you the netbuster thruster. Your bum was going to town.

“It was like a prawn cocktail. Loads of prawns and plenty of cocktail.”

It seems as though Fabrice has caught the dancing bug, saying he'd be up for a full series if he had the time.

"It all depends on what else is going on. I am very busy and we will just have to see," he teased.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Fabrice added: “Two weeks ago, I couldn’t perform ­ballroom dancing but now I can. I’ve really enjoyed doing the Strictly Christmas special. It was a lot of fun.

“I want to use what happened to me and turn it into something positive."
