Paddy Doherty is being lined up to take part in the next series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Paddy Doherty is being lined up to star in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 53-year-old traveller - best known for appearing in 'My Big Fat Gypsy Weddings' - recently took a salsa lesson in Spain while filming a new show for Channel 5 and despite having no rhythm, BBC bosses are desperate for him to join the programme this autumn.
A source said: "He is Mr Two Left Feet. He can't dance to save his life."
A number of stars are already being lined up to take part in the series including news presenter Sian Williams, former England cricket captain Michael Vaughn and TV star Fern Britton.
Model turned bodybuilder Jodie Marsh is also being lined up, with bosses keen to bring some excitement into the proceedings.
A source said: "The show was slammed as being boring last time around so bosses are keen to pick people who will make the headlines.
"In Jodie's case it doesn't have to be for the right reasons. She loves the limelight and they reckon she'd be great on the show."
