Michaela Strachan REALLY wants to join Strictly Come Dancing 2016

Michaela Strachan

TV presenter Michaela Strachan has called on Strictly Come Dancing bosses to sign her up to this year's series.

The telly host rose to fame on BBC One's kids nature show The Really Wild Show, and more recently replaced Kate Humble on the channel's new shows Autumnwatch and Sprignwatch.

Back in 2014 she appeared on ITV's Splash! diving show and now it seems she's looking to hit the Strictly dancefloor.

In a chat with Event magazine, Michaela invited producers to make an offer.

Although she admitted that past dance experience may rule her out.

Michaela said (via the Daily Mirror newspaper): "I've never been asked to do Strictly Come Dancing.

"I wonder if producers overlook me because of my dance background, but if they're reading this, come and get me!"

The new series of Strictly Come Dancing will air in the autumn and among the names rumoured are Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt, Xtra Factor host Melvin Odoom, footballer Alex Scott and Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood.

Recently Big Brother and The Voice UK presenter Emma Willis revealed she would like to sign up to Strictly, but confessed her schedule was a bit busy at the moment.

"I would love to do it one day, but I’m not a very good dancer and I don’t want to be the joke," Emma said. "I genuinely do want to learn to dance though so maybe one day – I’m a bit busy at the moment."

Strictly Come Dancing will air on BBC One in the autumn.
