Wayne Bridge is in talks to compete on Strictly Come Dancing

Wayne Bridge has teased he is in talks to compete on "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 36-year-old former England football player appeared on "I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" last year, and the sportsman has hinted he is set to put on his "dancing shoes" and take part in another reality show in the future.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the Southampton-born hunk said: "I've been in contact with "Strictly Come Dancing".

"So you never know, I could slip my dancing shoes on."

However, Wayne - who has sons Jaydon, 10, from his previous relationship with Vanessa Perroncel, as well as Parker, three, and 20-month-old Carter with his wife Frankie Bridge - has claimed the only reason he is speaking to the BBC One programme's production team is because his partner appeared on the competition in 2014 where she came second.

He explained: "[I've been speaking to the team] mainly because Frankie was on it."

Although Wayne and contestants for the next season have yet to be confirmed, Shirley Ballas has recently been announced as the new judge on the forthcoming season in replace of Len Goodman, who quit the shoe last year.
