Melvin Odoom to join the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 line up?

Xtra Factor host and Radio presenter Melvin Odoom says he's up for Strictly Come Dancing.

Melvin fronted last year's X Factor spin-off show on ITV2 with Rochelle Humes but has confessed he's no idea if the pair will be back this year.

"When we started doing it, I said to Rochelle that getting to do it for one year is amazing and if they ask you back again it's a bonus," Melvin admitted this week.

He told Heat magazine: "That's the way you've got to look at it. You don't go into it going, 'I need to be the presenter forever'. That's not how you do this game.

"If they ask us back then, yeah, thank God for that."

But if they don't get invited to return for a second series, Melvin has a back up plan: Strictly!

The Kiss FM DJ says he'd happily follow in the footsteps of Caroline Flack who won the show after she was booted from the Xtra Factor back in 2014.

"I'd like to do 'Strictly'," Melvin said. "I throw it down. I think the're missing a trick you know.

"And I'd get to wear sequins. Everyone is a winner. I'd do it but I don't think they're going to want me. It wouldn't be fair to have such a good dancer on the show."

Do you want to see Melvin on Strictly? Or do you want him back on the Xtra Factor this year?

We'll find out soon which - if either - will come true!
