Caroline Flack has said she wants to return to Strictly Come Dancing for the Christmas special.

The 2014 Strictly champ and Love Island host says she'd jumped at the chance for more appearance on the dancefloor... but has some reservations about dancing with another pro partner.

Caroline, who was originally dancing with Pasha Kovalev, told Radio Times magazine about appearing the Xmas Strictly special: “I think I definitely would. Yeah, if I could."

She added: “I couldn’t turn down any sort of Strictly because it’s so good… but then I think you have to dance with someone else.”

The Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special usually sees a mixture of former contestants as well as new names who weren't able to appear in the main show.

And this year it may not just be the dancefloor seeing some familiar faces.

Reports last month suggested that Sir Bruce Forsyth was on course to return as host of the festive special.

Sir Brucie quit hosting the main series in 2014 and while he planned to continue to front the one-off shows, the TV legend was forced to pull out of last year's Xmas episode due to ill health.

Following a major operation and a lot of rest and recuperation, it's hoped Sir Bruce could be able to host this year's festive special once again in December.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, a 'friend' said: "Strictly is really special for him, so that’s Bruce’s target – it’ll help him push on to get back to full strength.

“He’s been resting, but it was major surgery and it hasn’t been as easy as people might have hoped – but he’s a very determined man.”

The Strictly Christmas special airs on Christmas day on BBC One.
