Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly has revealed she's been wooing Hollywood star Sir Michael Caine to appear on the show.

Speaking to the Daily Star today, the telly present revealed she had bumped into the 72-year-old at a showbiz party and tried to persuade him to join the show.

She told the tabloid: “He just gave that wry iconic grin in return, which led me to think there might be a chance!”

Tess previously tipped the Batman actor to appear on the show last year, claiming that he was a big fan of the show.

She said last year: "Michael Caine once told me he was a big fan of the show and never misses an episode."
