Martine McCutcheon for Strictly Come Dancing?

Martine McCutcheon is being lined up for "Strictly Come Dancing".

The "Love Actually" actress has been offered a "six figure sum" by the BBC to take part in the celebrity dance show this year, after turning down the programme numerous times in the past.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: ""Strictly" really want her on the show, she is a household favourite and the public love her."

Martine, 41, recently revealed that she has turned down the show previously because she suffers with ME and Lyme disease.

She told the Daily Star Sunday: "I have been offered "Strictly" numerous times and a few of the others. I was offered so much money at one point which would have made a huge difference.

"Out of all the reality shows I would have absolutely loved to have done "Strictly", but I would have struggled with my health.

"Even people who are really, really fit have told me it's the hardest thing they've ever done so I know it wouldn't have been possible. I never felt I would be well enough to return to music after all my health problems with ME and Lyme disease.

"I am fit and well at the moment but while I am healthy I want to concentrate on the things I love the most, like music."

Meanwhile, Ruth Langsford is one of the celebrities set to take part in "Strictly" this year.

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 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."
