Brooke Vincent wants to take part in Strictly Come Dancing


Soap star Brooke Vincent has put her name forward for Strictly Come Dancing.

The Coronation Street actress has revealed she'd like to take on the challenge of the BBC One series in the future.


Brooke said this week: "I'd like to do something like Strictly Come Dancing where you get to learn a skill.

"I'd like to do some presenting but I'd have to work on my accent! I like being myself and I like talking! That's why I think I'd like working on the radio too."

However it's unlikely that we'll see Brooke on the Strictly line up this year, with the brunette beauty recently signing a new contract to stay on Corrie for the time being.

Brook, who plays Sophie Webster on the ITV soap, said: "I don't think Sophie's done yet. I think if I was to go, it world have to be at the right time and I think at the minute it's not.


"Plus I've just had Helen [Flanagan] back, and us two being back together will open different doors for storylines as well. "

The BBC has said that no names have been confirmed yet for the new series of Strictly but there have been plenty of rumours.

Some of the most recent names tipped for this year's cast are Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker.

They wouldn't be the first couple in Strictly's history with Gabby and Kenny Logan taking part together in series five in 2007.

Strictly Come Dancing will be back on BBC One later this year.

Other celebs rumoured already include Olympic gymnast Max Whitlock, footballer Frank Lampard, Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill, Paralympian Ellie Simmonds, actress Carley Stenson and comic Joel Dommett.

EastEnders actress Samantha Womack is also reportedly on the 'wish list' of stars for Strictly Come Dancing 2017, alongside her former co-star Rita Simons.
