Ruth Langsford is finally ready to say yes to ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, according to reports, after years of turning down offers from the show.

The ‘This Morning’ presenter, who has never been shy about busting a move on the set of the ITV daytime show, is thought to be signing a contract with ‘Strictly’ in the next few weeks, ahead of this year’s show.

Last year, Ruth was heavily rumoured to be involved on the line-up for the most recent series of ‘Strictly’, spurred on by an increase in posts to her social media pages which showed her dancing.

However, when the complete list of contestants was announced, Ruth was noticeably absent, which she even addressed on ‘This Morning’ at the time.

She claimed at the time she was “gutted” not to have been invited on the show, with Eamonn admitting he was relieved as he wouldn’t like to hear the judges critique his wife’s moves (though Ruth suggested it was more likely to be because he didn’t want her “rubbing up against a big Russian”).

Other stars tipped for the new series of ‘Strictly’ include Bros singer Matt Goss, fitness guru Joe Wicks and former ‘X Factor’ winner Alexandra Burke.
