Emilia Fox wants to join Strictly Come Dancing despite the fear of nerves

Emilia Fox

Actress Emilia Fox has said she's up for joining Strictly Come Dancing.

The TV star is most known for her role as Dr. Nikki Alexander in BBC drama Silent Witness, and she recently appeared in Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway's whodunit The Missing Crown Jewels.

Emilia is also no stranger to reality telly, previously taking on ITV's survival series Mission Survive with Bear Grylls.

So could Strictly be her next big TV challenge?

"With Mission Survive I think I did my own version of being on I'm A Celebrity - get Me Out Of Here! so I would love to do Strictly Come Dancing. It would be amazing learning a new skill," Emilia told OK! magazine this week.

However she admitted: "I'd just be terrified I would suffer from nerves. Im such a sensitive creature, I'm not sure I'd survive."

Emilia joins an ever-growing list of rumoured celebs for Strictly 2017.

Comic Tommy Cannon has also been tipped to join the show and at 78, he'd be the show's oldest ever contestant.

Other names tipped for this year's cast include Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins, Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker, Olympic gymnast Max Whitlock, footballer Frank Lampard and Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill.

There's also Paralympian Ellie Simmonds, actress Carley Stenson and comic Joel Dommett.

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

However no names are officially confirmed yet and won't be until the autumn.

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