'Strictly Come Dancing': Michelle Keegan And JLS' JB Gill Forced To Turn Down Show - Is It Running Out Of Celebs?

After 10 series, it looks like 'Strictly Come Dancing' could finally be running out of celebs willing to take to the floor, with the news both Michelle Keegan and JB Gill have been forced to turn the show down.

'Coronation Street' star Michelle has had the show blocked by soap bosses for the second year, despite the fact she quit her role as Tina McIntyre back in May.

According to The Sun, bosses at 'Strictly' were 'desperate' sign the star, but ITV stopped the move.

“She would be a top signing but Corrie would not release her," a BBC insider told the paper.

JLS star JB Gill has also turned down the next series, citing the band's farewell tour as the reason he is unable to compete.

The singer won the 2012 Christmas Special of the show, and producers were hoping to sign him up for a full stint.

"I can't do the next series of 'Strictly' because I'm on tour with the boys, but if I was free, it's something I would have loved to have done," he told PA.

"They did ask me to do it this year, but I couldn't. But if they ask me again next year then yeah, absolutely I'd consider it."

The news comes after Peter Andre - whose girlfriend is expecting their first child together - revealed he'd turned down the show for the fourth year running.
