'MasterChef' star Gregg Wallace has revealed he would love to take part in the new series of BBC One show 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Gregg Wallace wants to take part in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'MasterChef' star is a huge fan of the BBC One dance competition, and has revealed he is so desperate to be asked he doesn't even want to be paid for his appearance.
He said: "I'd like to do it so you wouldn't have to pay me. I just need the time. I'm a great dancer."
While Gregg may be confident of his dancing abilities, his 'MasterChef' partner John Torode is under no illusions about his skills, but would also be willing to take part.
He said: "Gregg's a far better dancer than I am but I'd love to learn."
Gregg added to Radio Times magazine: "John's the chef but I'm the one with rhythm. John's only got rhythm if he's beating an egg."
If Gregg does take part in the new series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' he could face competition from none other than royalty, as acid-tongued judge Craig Revel Horwood recently revealed he is keen for Prince William or Harry to take part in the show.
He said: "I'd like to see royalty on the show, like Wills or Harry. I think they would be absolutely fabulous.
"William must have a million waltzes up his sleeve now."
