Judge Rinder has spoken about THOSE Strictly Come Dancing rumours, and has had this to say.

The 38-year-old - real name Robert Rinder - appears on ITV's Judge Rinder, a Judge Judy-style daytime show where he rules on small claims cases.

It was reported earlier this year that he had signed up for the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 line up this autumn, and in a recent chat with Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2 did little to deny the rumours.

He told Chris (via Digital Spy): "I get all sorts of offers and I do see rumours about this and honestly I don't say yes to anything, but I have heard rumours about it - what do you think?"

Chris replied: "I think you're doing it because for the first time in this conversation you were inarticulate."

But Rinder insisted: "I wasn't inarticulate. I was just deciding how best to respond to your question - do you think I should do it?"

Suggesting that Rinder was 'guilty', Chris added: "I am saying this Christmas you will be adorned in sequins."

Rinder teased: "You think I've got a penchant for jazz hands and sequins?"

The new series of Strictly Come Dancing begins on BBC One in the autumn.

As yet no names are confirmed but rumoured celebs alongside Judge Rinder are singer Anastacia, Corrie's Ryan Thomas, model Daisy Lowe, Pop Idol singer Will Young, Eternal's Louise Redknapp, former I'm A Celebrity host Laura Whitmore and butler to the late Princess Diana, Paul Burrell.
