The former Liberty X singer has reportedly been snapped up by show bosses after they were impressed with her enthusiasm about possibly taking part.
Last month the reality star said it would be her ‘dream’ to appear on the BBC One show after a tough year that has seen her undergo a hysterectomy and double mastectomy after discovering she carries the deadly cancer gene BRCA2.
And now it looks like that dream is about to become a reality.
A source told The Sun: "The bosses were struck by Michelle's story and enthusiasm for the show.”
During an interview with Lorraine Kelly, the mum-of-two said taking part in the show would help her ‘feel womanly again’.
“I think it’s every girl's dream to do a show that makes you feel really glamorous and special,” she said. “And the last few years have been really rough so it’d be really nice to feel womanly again and do something positive and learn a craft.”
Other stars rumoured to be taking part in the new series of ‘Strictly’, which will be back on our screens from September, include Peter Andre, Alan Titchmarsh, Sarah Jane Crawford and EastEnders’ Shane Richie.
