Strictly Come Dancing 2019: Peter Crouch to sign up after Abbey's win? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Peter Crouch is best known for his moves on the football pitch but it looks like he could be donning sequins and lycra and taking to the dance floor later this year.

The 38-year-old watched on as his wife Abbey waltzed to victory with Aljaz in the 2013 series of the BBC dance competition.

Now bookmakers are certain Peter will follow in her footsteps and try to take home the Glitterball trophy after he retired as a professional footballers.

His odds of appearing on the show with Strictly Come Dancing bosses calling him up to take part have been cut to 2/1.

“We know he's got the moves and with one Strictly winner already in the Crouch household,” Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said.

“We wouldn't be surprised to see the man who brought the robot to the football pitch take to the dance floor this Autumn."

But if Peter doesn’t fancy the dancefloor, bookies have cut his odds of going into the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! jungle to just 3/1.

Peter may not be convinced to star on Strictly after Abbey revealed performing in front of a live audience was her “worst nightmare”.

She previously told CelebsNow: “It was my biggest fear and I couldn’t think of anything worse.

“Performing in front of people is my biggest nightmare and it was still on the show, I hated the live performance.”

Abbey, 33, went on to add she “struggled with my nerves a lot”.

Meanwhile, Coronation Street star Jack P. Shepherd has revealed the one show he would consider doing is Strictly.

“Probably I’d do that one over any of the others,” he told What’s On TV. “I don’t want to do the ice one.”

He went on to joke: “I’d lose my job if I did I’m A Celebrity because I’d say something or upset someone.

“I don’t think work would let me.”

There’s not long to go until the celebrity line-up for this year is revealed but speculation is still rife over who will replace Darcey Bussell on the judging panel.

Recent rumours have suggested former contestant Harry Judd would take over while Len Goodman has suggested Bonnie Langford would be good for the role.

“Yeah, she is someone who most people know, and I am not saying very young people, but most people know Bonnie Langford, so yeah, it is a pretty good call,” he told Hello!

“I have a feeling it will be another lady.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns later this year on BBC One.
