Strictly Come Dancing

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire host 64-year-old Chris Tarrant is reportedly in talks to take part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing competition. The ITV1 telly presenter is being head hunted by the BBC for the new series of the show which will return to screens in the autumn.

According to The Sun, show bosses reckon Tarrant will be "absolutely fabulous" on the show and can't to see him get his spray tan and dressed in tight pink lycra!

A source added to the tabloid: "He loves a laugh but he's full of opinions. He's top of the wish list and he's keen. Bosses want pretty actresses like last year's champion Kara Tointon, but it's characters like Chris who really make it."

British skier Chemmy Alcot is also tipped to join the show this year, as is The One Show host Alex Jones.
