Fashion designer Julien Macdonald is the latest name to be rumoured for 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

According to The Sun, Julien - who famously once had a spat with Cheryl Cole after he branded her a 'chav' at a party - is wanted by producers to bring some 'camp fun' to the ballroom show.

While the former 'Britain And Ireland's Next Top Model' judge is yet to officially sign for the show, it is thought he's likely to do so in the next few days.

An insider told the paper: "Julien would be great fun and producers hope he would bring his celeb mates to cheer him on."

He joins the likes of Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Vanessa Feltz and Abbey Clancy who are reported to have signed up for the show.

Earlier this week, it was revealed how the celebrities taking part in this series will be paid on how far they progress into the competition, rather than receiving a standard appearance fee.

Every star taking part receives a £25,000 payment, but if they manage to stay on the dancefloor until the end of October this rises to £40,000 and jumps to £60,000 for anyone who makes it to the quarter finals.

The five celebs who reach the semis will pocket £75,000, with the winner walking away with £100,000 - and the glitterball trophy.
