Emmerdale actress Natalie Anderson has admitted she hopes to appear on Strictly Come Dancing 2014.

With the latest series of the BBC One show having finished just a week ago, celebs are already putting their names into the hat for the new show next autumn.

Emmerdale star Natalie - who plays Alicia Metcalfe on the ITV series - said this week she'd love to follow in the footsteps of fellow soap star Natalie Gumede, who made this year's final.

"I'd love to do Strictly Come Dancing," Natalie told the Daily Star newspaper. "It depends on Emmerdale's schedule. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed."

With Strictly 2014 way off in the future, for now Natalie is just looking forward to Christmas and New Years celebrations.

She added: "I just love the festive period so much ... I love the fact that you get to have a few glasses of wine."

Meanwhile, Strictly judge Bruno Tonioli has revealed his own wishlist for next year.

Quizzed about his ideal celebs for future line ups, he said: "For years I've asked for David Beckham. he would be so good, old Goldenballs!

"I've even suggested that the BBC send him some special golden dancing shoes to tempt him."

Bruno added: "He looks good in a suit, so he'd be great.. or Kate Moss!"
