Former 'BBC Breakfast' host Sian Williams is set to take part in the next series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Sian Williams is to take part in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The former 'BBC Breakfast' host - who quit the morning show following its move from London to Salford, Greater Manchester, earlier this year - has been targeted by show bosses because she is such a hit with viewers of the network and has already shown off her dancing talents after taking part in a 'Strictly' special for Children In Need, in which she was partnered with Vincent Simone.
A source said: "She is hugely popular with BBC viewers and is fit as a fiddle so we want her on the dance floor."
Gold medal-winning Olympian Amy Williams is also expected to take part in the show.
Amy - who has appeared on a number of shows including 'A Question of Sport' and 'A League Of Their Own' since retiring from competing in the skeleton - is said to have impressed bosses with her lively personality.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Amy is full of beans and is really fun to have around."
Former 'This Morning' host Fern Britton and cricketer Michael Vaughan are also believed to have signed up for the new series.
