Ruth Langsford signs up to Strictly Come Dancing?

uth Langsford is set to take part in this year's "Strictly Come Dancing".

The "This Morning" host is yet to sign on the dotted line but has reportedly agreed to take part in the forthcoming series of the ballroom and latin show after bosses approached her once again about the hip-shaking gig following years of rejection.

A source told the MailOnline: "Ruth has always been a big fan of the show, and producers are thrilled that she has changed her mind and will be taking part this year.

"No one has signed any contracts for the show this year but she has had long talks with show bosses and, barring any injury, will be waltzing her way onto the show this autumn. Eamonn [Holmes, her husband] is really excited about cheering her on."

Although she seems keen to slip into her sequinned frocks and hit the dance floor this autumn, a representative for the BBC have played down the rumours for now.

A spokesperson told the publication: "This is speculation. The "Strictly Come Dancing" line up will be announced by the BBC in due course."

Bosses may still need to confirm the celebrity line up but, one thing's for certain, there will be plenty of fireworks when the show returns this autumn as the judging panel and troupe of professionals have been given a huge shake up recently.

The forthcoming series will see legendary choreographer Shirley Ballas claim Len Goodman's Head Judge seat following his shock departure at the end of last year and, although the fellow panelists - Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli - are excited to have her on board, they're convinced she'll stand her ground.

Craig told BANG Showbiz recently: "I'm really looking forward to working with our new head judge Shirley Ballas, she's going to be fantastic, I met up with her, she's a real laugh, hopefully we'll get on and it won't be a frosty relationship that I had with Len Goody, Goody, Goodman.

"I suspect we'll clash, she's a purist just like Len was, she's from that ballroom and latin world which is very strict, she's going to be great, she's feisty and she'll be funny too. I think she'll be out there, I think she'll be hard on people, she knows her stuff."
