'Strictly Come Dancing' 2015: Louise And Jamie Redknapp 'To Compete Against Each Other On New Series'


Jamie and Louise Redknapp are set for battle in the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ ballroom, as the married couple have both reportedly signed up for the BBC show.


Jack Whitehall allegedly let the cat out of the bag while filming an episode of ‘A League Of Their Own’ with Jamie and ‘Strictly’ host Claudia Winkleman.

According to the Daily Star, Jack blabbed the news to the audience during a break in filming, which left Claudia highly unimpressed.

"It was obviously supposed to be a backstage secret that wasn't supposed to have been made public knowledge. Jamie quickly denied it, saying ‘No, no, it’s not true’, but he went bright red.”

A show insider insisted the couple hadn’t signed when contacted by the paper, but did reveal they were in the final stages of negotiations.

The couple are parents to two sons, Charley, 10, and six-year-old Beau, and reportedly have concerns about how the show’s filming schedule will fit around looking after them.

After the story broke, Jack took to Twitter to comment on his part in revealing the news.

“Jamie's fuming that I managed to create this story from nothing. I'm so chuffed,” he said.

If Jamie and Louise do chose to sign up, they won’t be the first couple to compete against each other on the BBC show, as Gabby Logan and her husband Kenny both competed in the 2007 series together.

Other celebs rumoured to be taking part in this year’s series include Peter Andre, former ‘Daybreak’ host Adrian Chiles, ‘Miranda’ star Tom Ellis, ex-’Coronation Street’ star Georgia May Foote, ‘Loose Women’ panellist Jamelia and ‘BBC Breakfast’ weather presenter Carol Kirkwood.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ is set to return to BBC One later this year.
