Jodie Comer

Actress Jodie Comer has reportedly been approached to do Strictly Come Dancing.

Jodie, best known for roles in Killing Eve and Doctor Foster, could be on the line up next year if producers get their way.

However Jodie confessed she's not as keen as show bosses are for her to be on the dancefloor.

Jodie told The Sun newspaper after appearing in the audience of the series this year: "They were like, ‘Maybe next year, Jodie ... ?’

"I was like, ‘Mmm, no, I don’t think so!’ I’d embarrass myself, definitely!”

“I went with my mum and my nan because my nan is a Strictly superfan," she added. “It was a once in a lifetime for her so it was really fun.”

Although the most recent series of Strictly has only just finished, producers are already working on the line up for next year.

Tess Daly revealed this month: “We’ve already been plotting and planning which celebrities are going to be approached next year. People have already been approached for next year.

“I’ve heard there’s a few who have already confirmed.”

Those rumoured range from TV and radio host Fearne Cotton and X Factor star Olly Murs to BBC journalist Steph McGovern,

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton said: “The BBC tend to keep talks quiet, but we know a lot of celebrities are huge fans of the show.

“Fearne Cotton and Steph McGovern have previously been linked and it no surprise to see them linked again. Olly Murs would be a huge coup and clearly he is in the reckoning."

Meanwhile, TV and Radio presenter Chris Evans recently claimed he's agreed to take part in Strictly Come Dancing in 2019.

Alan Carr has also confirmed he too has been approached to join Strictly Come Dancing.

Strictly Come Dancing 2019 will launch in September on BBC One.
