Caroline Flack is the latest star to be linked to the next series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, hot off the announcement she has stepped down as presenter of ‘The Xtra Factor’.
Caroline hosted the ‘X Factor’ companion show for three years, first with popstar Olly Murs and then with comedian Matt Richardson, but it was recently revealed that she was quitting the show, meaning her summer would be conveniently free.
‘Strictly’ pro-dancer Brendan Cole has revealed that he’d love to see the presenter strapping on her dancing shoes when the show returns to screens later this year, telling Digital Spy: “Caroline Flack, she'd be great, definitely. That would be amazing.”
However when discussing if he’d like to see any other former ‘X Factor’ stars appearing on the show, he said he wouldn’t like to see ex-judge Nicole Scherzinger stepping onto the ‘Strictly’ dance-floor, as she’s already won the American version of the show.
He’s since admitted that leaving ‘Strictly’ behind after ten years wasn’t an easy decision to make, comparing it to breaking up with a girlfriend, but later said he was fed up of criticisms over his age and said: “You do start to feel a bit stale, like a bit of fruit you’ve put in a bowl.”
