Nigel Farage could end up on the Strictly Come Dancing next year


Nigel Farage could end up on the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 line up next year.

After Ed Balls' classic run on this year's show, the former UKIP leader could be next to show off his dance skills.

Speaking about Ed's success, and rumours he could be next, Farage said this week: "He did so brilliantly - so, so brilliantly - that I wouldn’t rule anything out.”

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I’ve had plenty of offers, I just couldn’t do any of them right now.”

It was reported earlier this year that Farage had been in talks with both Celebrity Big Brother and I'm A Celebrity, before deciding to pull out of both shows.

Rumour has it that ITV were offering as much as £1 million to get him in the jungle but Farage's spokesperson said he had turned down the show because the politician wasn't a "blithering idiot” and would “rather go fishing”.

However Farage teased: “I would never say never.

“I just couldn’t do anything now because I’ve been so busy.”

For now, Strictly Come Dancing 2016 continues Saturday and Sunday night with its live semi-final.
