Football star Michael Owen is reportedly the target for both Strictly Come Dancing and I'm A Celebrity this year.

The former England star will retire from the game this year and now telly producers want him for their shows.

The Daily Star reports this week that both Strictly and I'm A Celeb bosses reckon the sportsman will make a great addition to their line ups this autumn.

Apparently TV chiefs reckon the current Stoke player will make for great scenes whether it's in a sparkly ballroom outfit or scoffing bugs in the Aussie bush.

Names already linked to I'm A Celebrity this year include X Factor star and Celebrity Big Brother housemate Rylan Clark and The Only Way Is Essex's James 'Arg' Argent, as well as footie's Paul Gascoigne.

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

Stars rumoured to be on the show include former X factor winner Joe McElderry and TOWIE's Mark Wright, while both Big Brother host Davina McCall and Mark's fellow former TOWIE cast member Lauren Pope have said they'd be up for competing.
