Tess Daly wants Prince Charles to compete in the next series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' because the future king is such a huge fan of the BBC One show

Tess Daly wants Prince Charles to compete in the next series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The future king and his wife Camilla are huge fans of the BBC One show and now host Tess - who presents the programme alongside Sir Bruce Forsyth - is keen for the royal to show off his dancing skills by taking part.

She said: "He's told me he's a huge dancing fan and loves the show... and has always wanted to tango."

While it seems unlikely that Charles will actually participate in 'Strictly', one person who is desperate to appear on next year's show is Fern Britton.

The 54-year-old TV host - who featured in a festive special last year - has always wanted to take part in the main series, but has never been able to squeeze it into her schedule.

She told Woman's Own magazine: "I would definitely love to do it. It has always clashed with my charity bike ride but next year the ride is taking place in the spring so I've certainly got the time.

"Doing 'Strictly' is amazing. It makes you feel life is wonderful. When people say they feel sad after getting kicked out, it's true."
