Pippa Middleton has been offered a five-figure sum to appear on the next series of 'Strictly Come Dancing', with BBC bosses desperate to beat rival show 'The X Factor' in the ratings war
Pippa Middleton has been offered a five-figure sum to appear on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
BBC One bosses are reportedly willing to go to "any lengths" to have the 27-year-old beauty - who shot to fame after showing off her shapely physique in a figure-hugging bridesmaid's dress at sister Kate's wedding to Prince William on April 29 - appear on the upcoming series celebrity dancing show.
Furthermore, it is hoped having Pippa appear in a number of skimpy costumes could help 'Strictly' to win the ratings battle against ITV1's 'The X Factor'.
A BBC insider explained: "Pippa has become almost as famous as Kate since the wedding. It would be a huge coup to get her and give the show global appeal."
While Pippa is said to be a huge fan of 'Strictly' and keen to appear on the show, she is determined not to "embarrass" her royal sister.
A friend added to The Sun newspaper: "She's a bit overwhelmed by all the attention and is considering her next move very carefully. She is conscious that her sister is going to be queen one day and is determined not to do anything embarrassing.
"But she loves 'Strictly' and if she was sure her appearance would be handled correctly she'd be keen to slip into sequins."
'Strictly Come Dancing' professional Erin Boag recently admitted she is keen to perform alongside Prince Harry in the new series of the BBC One show.
She said: "I wouldn't mind Prince Harry as my dancing partner. I tried phoning him the other day but he must have been busy."
