Frankie Bridge is up for replacing Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing

Frankie Bridge

Frankie Bridge says she'd be up for replacing Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing.

Even if she wouldn't quite know what she's talking about.

The singer, who was runner up on the 2014 series, could follow in the footsteps of fellow popstar Alesha Dixon.

Alesha also appeared on the show as a contestant before joining the panel although she's since moved on to Britain's Got Talent.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper about who should replace Len, Frankie said: “I think it should be me!

“Imagine me sitting there, ‘Oh, you’ve turned your toe in there.’ I don’t know what I’m talking about.”

Well that didn't stop Donny Osmond....

Discussing Len's departure after the current series, Frankie went on: “I’m devastated Len’s leaving."

She explained: “I think whoever fills Len’s boots will have a hard job, they’ll be given a hard time.

"He’s going to be missed but I don’t blame him. He goes backwards and forwards to America to do the US version and stuff.”

Len confirmed earlier this year that the 2016 series of Strictly would be his last on British TV.

Len said: “In 2004, I was asked to take part in a brand new BBC Saturday night show and who would have thought me, old Len Goodman, would still be part of this amazing series more than 10 years on.

"This adventure began when I was 60 and now that I’ve reached my 70s, I’ve decided after this year it’s time to hand the role of Head Judge to someone else."

He added: "It is an honour being part of the wonderful Strictly Come Dancing family and I’m looking forward to my last series very much and to whatever comes next.”

For now, Strictly (with Len) is back this Saturday night live on BBC One from 6:45PM.
