Catherine Tyldesley

Corrie star Catherine Tyldesley could be heading to the dance floor this year, with a source telling The Sun: “Producers think she’ll be a great signing because of her strong fan ­following and her bubbly personality. They can see her going far in the competition.”

The actress previously dropped a huge hint that she could turn up on Strictly, having told Hello!: “I’m such a fan. At some point I would love to do it.

“I can’t dance and have never had the confidence. I usually only hit the dance floor after a couple of drinks.

“But it’s something I’ve always wanted to learn. It’s an amazing skill to have. So I might pop up at some point.”

One of Faye Tozer’s fellow Steps stars might be following in her footSTEPS (sorry) and joining the Strictly line-up.

“There’s a few reality shows I would do and likewise, there is a few I wouldn’t do,” Lee Latchford-Evans told Express.co.uk. “I think Strictly is one I would definitely do… there’s no harm in doing something where you’re learning something.”

He added: “Strictly you’re obviously doing something new and I’ve never ballroom danced in my life so that would be fun.

“Yeah, why not. Let’s give it a go!”

Andy Murray

Andy Murray could be following in his mother Judy’s footsteps and joining the Strictly line-up five years after she competed on the show.

The tennis champion, who is set to retire this year, is at 5/2 odds to swap the court for the dance floor, according to betway.


Could the Glitterball Trophy be the next accolade for Murray to add to his already-crowded awards shelf?
