Is Springwatch’s Michaela Strachan heading for the Strictly ballroom?

The presenter loves the idea of taking to the dance floor...


Springwatch star Michaela Strachan could be in the frame to join this year’s line-up of celebrities on Strictly Come Dancing.


The 50-year-old TV presenter, known for The Really Wild Show, Countryfile, Elephant Diaires and more, is keen to swap the great outdoors for the glitter and glitz of the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom.

“Michaela loves the show. She has always loved the idea of being a contestant on Strictly,” a source tells, revealing that “they have certainly considered her in the past.”

Could this be the year Strachan will take to the floor?

If you ask us, the smily star would be a great catch for the Saturday night entertainment show. We’d love to see her ditch her wellies and strap on a pair of sparkly dancing shoes instead – and Strachan’s familiar face would certainly be popular with BBC1’s core audience.


Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC1 later this year
