Rylan Clark-Neal for Strictly Come Dancing? If he ever quits Big Brother!

Celebrity Big Brother 2017

Rylan Clark-Neal has said he's up for taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.

However the TV host said it wouldn't be happening any time soon, due to his commitments on Big Brother.

Rylan, who rose to fame on The X Factor before winning Celebrity Big Brother, said: "You know what, I think Strictly is the only one I would do now."

The now Bit On the Side presenter explained: "I can’t as I’m at Big Brother, the timings would never happen.

"When Strictly starts, I’m at work still, so I see all the Strictly lot all the time.

"We have about a three week cross over."

While Rylan isn't on Strictly (for now), two other X Factor stars took part in the latest series.

2008 winner Alexandra Burke and runner up from the same year, Aston Merrygold of boy band JLS appeared in the 2017 competition.

Alexandra now is a singer and West End performer currently starring in Sister Act in the lead role of Doloris Van Cartier in the UK tour.

Alexandra, who made the final, said of joining Strictly: “I am so excited to be joining this year’s Strictly cast! I love this show and have followed it from the beginning, so being able to be a part of it is just a dream come true for me - I still can’t believe it!"

She was joined by Aston who finished as runner up to Alex with JLS.

He said: “I’m so happy to be joining Strictly 2017, it is such a brilliant show and I’ve followed it for years. I’m both nervous and excited to learn from the professionals about a whole new way of dancing!”

Strictly Come Dancing's last series was won by Joe McFadden.
