Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly today revealed she wants to see former James Bond actor Sean Connery take to the dance floor on the show. Speaking to The Sun about the upcoming series of the programme in the autumn, quipped that co-host Bruce Forsyth may be able to pull a few strings!

"I would love to see Sean on Strictly. I have a bit of a hankering for him," she told The Sun. "My co-host Bruce Forsyth is a mate of his, so he can put in a word and hopefully get him on."

The latest series of Strictly Come Dancing, expected to kick off in September on BBC One, is said to be the "biggest yet". Celebs already tipped to take part include The One Show and Let's Dance presenter Alex Jones. A source said: "Alex has been a dream come true for The One Show. She held the whole thing together and everyone’s grateful.

“Bosses think it’s her time to shine.”
