Donna Air has been linked to this year's Strictly Come Dancing line up.

Although apparently, bosses only want her after her rumoured engagement to James Middleton.

According to The Sun newspaper, the former Byker Grove actress' links to the Duchess of Cornwall has put her on the producer's wishlist for the new series.

An insider told the newspaper: “Strictly’s been trying to bag a contestant with royal connections for years, with Pippa Middleton top of the list.

"But Donna would also be a great catch.”

Meanwhile, Homeland actor David Harewood has revealed that he turned down the chance to appear on the show this year after getting a call from show bosses.

In a less than subtle tweet, he told his fans this week that he turned down a "rather well known" dancing series, but he "strictly" wouldn't do it.

The 47-year-old - perhaps best known for his role as David Estes on the American series - wrote online: "I was asked to do a rather well-known Saturday ‘Dancing’ show yesterday. I said No. Strictly speaking its not for me. #spandex.”


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

Some of the stars already rumoured to be on the show include former X factor winner Joe McElderry and TOWIE’s Mark Wright, as well as footballer Michael Owen and Cheryl Cole.

Meanwhile both Big Brother host Davina McCall and Mark’s fellow former TOWIE cast member Lauren Pope have said they’d be up for competing.
