‘Strictly Come Dancing' 2014: Radio 1 DJ Greg James To Sign Up?

Radio 1’s Greg James is the latest celeb to be linked to the upcoming series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

The DJ is apparently a top priority for the show’s bosses, who are keen to attract a younger audience.

According to The Sun, Greg has been approached by ‘Strictly’ execs for the second year running.

“He was asked to take part last year but had to say no,” a source told the paper. “Now bosses have approached him again and are keen for him to say yes.

“They think he would be great — and it doesn’t hurt that he is young and good looking as well.”

“He has a very loyal younger audience on his radio show and bosses would be thrilled if they followed Greg to ‘Strictly’ too,” the source added.

The DJ is no stranger to appearing on TV and over the weekend, he fronted BBC3’s coverage of the Big Weekend event in Glasgow.

He has also hosted his own show on BBC3 with Russell Kane, titled ‘Staying In With Greg And Russell’.

There has been plenty of speculation over who will take part in this year’s ‘Strictly’, with rumoured contestants including former ‘TOWIE’ stars Mark Wright and Joey Essex, as well as actress Michelle Collins.

The upcoming series will be the first one without Sir Bruce Forsyth, who announced his plans to quit the show earlier this year.

Claudia Winkleman will present both the Saturday and Sunday night shows alongside Tess Daly.
