Is the Duchess ready to dance?
The Duchess of York could be donning her dancing shoes to star in the US version of Strictly Come Dancing.
Fergie, the former wife of Prince Andrew, is already a hit across the pond and has now made it clear she wants to star in the Los Angeles-based show, Dancing With The Stars.
'Fergie will add a touch of class to the proceedings,' the show's producer Conrad Green told the paper.
'The fans will be waiting to see if she falls for her dance partner. Everyone loves a royal romance and her presence will bring dazzling ratings.
'We like having a mixture and we've not had a duchess,' he added.
The 47-year-old could be up against former Wimbledon tennis star Chris Evert, 51, who is reportedly also in talks with US network ABC.
Meanwhile, in the UK, the Prime Minister's wife Cherie Blair, is apparently a big fan of Strictly Come Dancing.
Host Tess Daly was quoted saying: 'She loves our show and wants to get all the backstage gossip. She knows all about the dances. I was gobsmacked and we're grateful that she watches.'
Could Cherie be vying for a place in next year's show? Surely not.
