Rylan Clark-Neal for Strictly Come Dancing next year?

Celebrity Big Brother

Rylan Clark-Neal has been tipped to join the Strictly Come Dancing line up next year.

The presenter is arguably in need of a new TV gig after Big Brother was axed by Channel 5 last week.

And fans hope he signs up to Strictly following a guest appearance on the BBC One show last night (Saturday, November 10).

Rylan was in the audience and helped out host Claudia Winkleman with the voting details.

Viewers have subsequently started to campaign to get Rylan on the show.

Speaking about the prospect previously, Rylan revealed his celebrity pals were encouraging him to take on the challenge.

Rylan said last year: "I'm being bullied to do Strictly Come Dancing. I'd love to do it but it's a very big time commitment.

"I'm in a lucky position and this could all end in the morning. Five years in telly is like 50. It's more what you say no to rather than what you say yes to."

He added: "If I'd said yes to everything then I don't think I'd be doing what I'm doing now."

Rylan, who rose to fame on The X Factor before winning Celebrity Big Brother, previously said taking on Strictly would require him leaving his current CBB spin-off hosting commitments.

The 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."

But with Big Brother now off-air, could Rylan take to the Strictly ballroom?

If Rylan does ever take on Strictly, he wouldn't be the first X Factor star to do so.

2008 winner Alexandra Burke and runner up from the same year, Aston Merrygold of boy band JLS took part in this year's show.

Aston made a shock early exit but Alexandra got through to the grand final.

The current series of Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday and Sunday nights on BBC One.
