Alan Hansen

Match of the Day pundit Alan Hansen and TV hard man have both been linked to this year's Strictly Come Dancing 2014 line up.

Firstly, according to The Sun newspaper, Alan Hansen is reportedly in talks with bosses after announcing his exit from MOTD after the World Cup this summer.

He said of his exit: “I’ve been in football for 41 years and I’m going out right at the top, just as I did at Liverpool.”

A Strictly source claimed: “The feeling is that a deal can be done.

“He would be a brilliant signing for Strictly. The fact that he is known for his forthright views is a bonus.”

Meanwhile, the Daily Star newspaper reports that Strictly producers are after former Eastenders star Ross Camp.

An insider told the Sunday tabloid this morning: “Strictly bosses believe Ross would prove a massive ratings hit on the show and are determined to get him ‘at all costs’.

“Producers are willing to splash the cash as much as possible to get him on the dance floor.”


Some of the other celebrity names already linked to the new run include former Corrie actress Michelle Keegan, soap star Michelle Collins and X Factor winner Joe McElderry, as well as ALL of TOWIE's Sam Faiers, Joey Essex Mark Wright and James Arg Argent

There have also been rumours that Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean could take part after Dancing On Ice’s final series concluded earlier this year.

Strictly kicks off on in the autumn on BBC One.
