'Strictly Come Dancing' 2015: Jamelia 'Chooses BBC Show' Over 'I'm A Celebrity'

Jamelia has signed up for ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, declining the chance to appear on ‘I’m a Celebrity’, according to reports.

The ‘Loose Women’ panellist was previously thought to have agreed to a stint in the jungle. However, it's claimed she’ll be getting her dancing shoes on instead.


A source told The Sun: “Jamelia is going to be a hot favourite right from the start. She’s stunning, has long legs and is experienced with dance routines because of her pop past.

“We expect her to be at the standard of Pixie Lott, who did really well last year.”

One of her pals added that the singer’s a fan of both shows, but opting for ‘Strictly’ instead would mean she can still star on the ITV lunchtime show.

“Jamelia’s been wanted by both shows for a number of years but ‘Strictly’ makes more sense to her because it will allow her to continue being a mum and to work on ‘Loose Women’,” the friend states.

This year’s series of ‘Strictly’ is still months away, but it’s believed that plenty of stars have rushed to sign up.

Other celebs tipped to hit the dancefloor include ‘Emmerdale’ actress Natalie Anderson, Michelle Heaton and Peter Andre.
