He teased: “I’ve been in contact with Strictly Come Dancing, mainly because Frankie was on it. So you never know, I could slip my dancing shoes on.”

Last year saw Wayne join the cast of ITV's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, proving he was definitely up for a reality TV challenge.

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: “I said not a chance to Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, so you know – never say never.”

Other names liked to this year's Strictly cast at the time being 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, comic Joel Dommett and marathon runner Paula Radcliffe.

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.
