"He has impressed people with his hilarious appearances on 'Play To The Whistle' and comes across as a natural for a big TV series like 'Strictly'." And if he does sign up to compete in the show, Frank - who has daughters Luna, 11, and Isla, nine, with former partner Elen Rivas - can turn to his wife Christine Lampard for help, as the 38-year-old presenter took part in 2008 and finished fifth alongside professional partner Matthew Cutler.Apparently bosses are keen to get him on the show to send hearts fluttering and a source said: “Joe would be perfect on Strictly.I can't wait to get in to the ballroom and be part of the incredible and respected judging panel.'Strictly Come Dancing' is so loved by the British public, I have always been a massive fan. " the 56-year-old star - who is nicknamed the 'Queen of Latin' - will certainly give the other judges Bruno Tonioli, Darcey Bussell and Craig Revel Horwood a run for their money as she's one of the most decorated professional dancers in the world.Apparently, BBC bosses really wanted Tim Peake for the 2016 series but apparently he wasn’t able to participate as he is on a two year rehabilitation programme to ensure he can walk properly after the effects of the space travel.By the time the next series is kicking off he will have had a year and half of rehab so maybe he’ll be ready for the 2017’s line-up.
"They would love to have him on board so we will see how things progress in the coming weeks.
The former 'Dancing With the Stars' panellist is "over the moon" she's been chosen to take over from the legendary Len Goodman - who quit the show last year - as head judge on the ballroom and latin series when it returns to screens this September.
She said: "I am so excited and over the moon to have been given this wonderful opportunity.
Each series is generally kicked off with a 'coming out' show in the last Friday in September so we're thinking around the 22nd or 29th September.
There's been no official statement from producers, who are yet to confirm that Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will be returning to continue their three year reign as Strictly presenters.
