Pippa Middleton ‘keen’ on Strictly Come Dancing role

PIPPA MIDDLETON is on the verge of accepting a role in the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Strictly’s producers want to enlist the services of the sister of the next Queen as a weapon of ratings destruction against Saturday night rival X Factor and Pippa is thinking over the offer.

“She loves Strictly,” a friend of the almost-royal told The Sun.

“If she was sure her appearance would be handled correctly she’d be keen to slip into sequins.”

The attraction of Pippa to Strictly is obvious as the show’s 14 million viewers would get to see the 27-year-old in a succession of dresses that hugged her famous figure.

“It would be a huge coup to get her and give the show global appeal,” said a Strictly source.

Other celebs rumoured to have been offered spots in Strictly Come Dancing 2011 are Anita Dobson, Alex Jones and Robbie Savage. SCD starts in the autumn.
