Former Sugababes singer Keisha Buchanan is said to be considering an offer to appear on 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Keisha Buchanan is set to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The former Sugababes singer - who is currently working on her debut solo LP - is said to be "seriously considering" an offer to appear on the BBC1 celebrity dance contest but is unsure whether she can fit it into her schedule.
A source said: "Keisha is recording solo material in Los Angeles and has deals on the table including music, a book, and 'Strictly'.
"It's simply a case of deciding what is the right next move."
However, insiders expect the 25-year-old singer - who was replaced in Sugababes by Jade Ewen last September amid accusations she had bullied bandmates Amelle Berrabah and Heidi Range - to sign up for the show after seeing how it transformed the career of Alesha Dixon, who is now one of the programme's judges after winning the competition in 2007.
Another source said: "Keisha was thrilled when asked to be part of the show. But she is a little apprehensive.
"In the Sugababes, it was all about the singing. They never really danced. So the training would be really hard for her.
"Her pal Alesha Dixon saw her solo career really take off after 'Strictly' and she's hoping that it could help her, too.
"She has so much on, it depends on whether she can fit it all in. But she is seriously keen. It's one of the only reality shows she would ever consider."
