‘Emmerdale’ star Natalie Anderson has thrown her hat into the ring for this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, admitting that she’d love the chance to waltz across the show’s dancefloor.

The actress, who plays Alicia Metcalfe in the soap, is set to leave the Dales later this year, which makes a switch to ‘Strictly’ possible.

During a chat with Hello!, Natalie explains that her main reason for leaving is to spend time with her son Freddie, who starts school next year.

When quizzed on the possibility of signing up for ‘Strictly’, she replies: ''I would absolutely love that. If they wanted me then I would do it. But I won't lose sight of why I made the decision to leave 'Emmerdale'.”

Natalie's not the only star to reveal that she’d love to get her dancing shoes on, and last month, Michelle Heaton previously revealed her reason for wanting to take part.

The former Liberty X singer recently underwent a precautionary double mastectomy and hysterectomy, after finding out she carries the cancer gene BRCA2. In June, she stated that ‘Strictly’ would be a great way “to feel womanly again”.

Peter Andre has also admitted he’d love to give ‘Strictly’ a go, while bosses are reportedly keen to sign up Alan Titchmarsh.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ is due to return to our screens this Autumn.
