Strictly Come Dancing 2013: TOWIE's Lauren Pope to join line up?

Lauren Pope

The Only Way is Essex star Lauren Pope wants to join Strictly Come Dancing in 2013.

The TV start reckons she'd be much better at the BBC1 show over rival programs such as Channel 5 Big Brother

Speaking to BANG showbiz, Lauren said she didn't want to follow her former stars – such as Amy Childs and Kirk Norcross – into a celebrity Big Brother house.

She said" I’d love to go on something like Strictly Come Dancing, it’s nice and glamorous.

"I don’t think I could do Big Brother. I think it’s a bit too ... I don’t know, just imagine sitting on the toilet and thinking someone is watching you.

“I think I would be way too much of a wimp for I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!.

“I’d probably just get on with it and do it even though on the inside I’d be absolutely terrified. You’ve got to go for it otherwise it doesn’t come across very well. Something glam like Strictly would be great.”

Speaking to BANG! Showbiz, Lauren claimed she reckons she has the moves to do well on Strictly.

But she admitted: “The only dancing I’ve done is when I’m drunk in a nightclub or at parties, I’d like to think I’ve got the moves, though.

“But when you’re drunk you think you’re the best dancer ever. I do a really good robot.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns for its 11th series at the end of the year.

Stars already link to the show include former X factor winner Joe McElderry, Lauren's fellow TOWIE star Mark Wright and Big Brother host Divina McCall.
