Usain Bolt for Strictly Come Dancing?

Share article:

Usain Bolt wants to take part in "Strictly Come Dancing".

The 31-year-old Olympic athlete - who is the world record holder for the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 × 100 metres relay - has admitted he'd love to try his hand at the ballroom and latin competition because he loves to wiggle his hips "a lot."

Speaking to Radio Times magazine, he said: "I love to dance and anyone who knows me or has followed me will have seen me dance a lot.

"Dancing and music are a big part of Jamaican culture."

And the retired sprinter may be in luck as bosses are on the hunt for celebrities to take part in the forthcoming series in September - and he fits their criteria.

Producers have decided to ban any reality TV star from the line up this year because they're reportedly fed up of them cashing in on the show.

A source said recently: "Certain reality celebrities have been peddling these stories about being "in talks" for the show when they have never been approached.

"Bosses are now fed up of hearing the same people bandying around their own names just to shift a few copies of some weight-loss DVD. In light of this, they've put in place their own reality star ban to stop them from cashing in on the show."

The line up is being kept under wraps for now, but it's believed Stormzy's girlfriend Maya Jama, Union J's Josh Cuthbert and TV presenter Anneka Rice have all been approached for the new series as bosses want to outdo last year's instalment.

Meanwhile, the news of the ban will no doubt infuriate Gemma Collins - who shot to fame on "TOWIE" back in 2011 - as she's been desperate to slip into a skimpy dress and shake her hips in front of acid-tongue judge Craig Revel Horwood for months.

She said recently: "I like them tall dark and handsome, with swept back hair so I can run my fingers through it on the dancefloor. I also like Anton du Beke or Gorka."
