Louise Redknapp has given her support to husband Jamie Redknapp joining the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 line up.

Louise was a runner up on last year's Strictly and wants to see her footballer hubby hit the dancefloor this year.

However it may take a LOT of persuading.

Louise told Hello magazine: "I'd love to see Jamie do Strictly, it would be incredible.

"I don't know how long he'd last he'd either not turn up to rehearsals as he'd be on the golf course, or they'd never get him in the spangly pants. But if he wanted to give it a go, I'd be absolutely behind him!"

However Louise added: "Jamie has no interest in learning to dance at all, and I don’t blame him because he’s not the most elegant of dancers."

Strictly Come Dancing will be back on BBC One later this year.

Other celebs rumoured already include Olympic gymnast Max Whitlock, footballer Frank Lampard, Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill, Paralympian Ellie Simmonds, actress Carley Stenson and comic Joel Dommett.

EastEnders actress Samantha Womack is also reportedly on the 'wish list' of stars for Strictly Come Dancing 2017, alongside her former co-star Rita Simons.

The on screen sisters had appeared on the BBC One soap for years but were both killed off on New Year’s Day in a shock story line.
