Mark and Michelle have made different choices about appearing on 'Strictly'

“I have had interest from ‘Strictly’ this year and last year,” Mark told The Mirror. “It’s a great show.”

The Mirror also reports that Mark is in 'early negotiations' to appear, adding that a BBC source has stated: “Mark does a lot of work with ITV but he isn’t bound by a contract so could do Strictly if he wanted to."
