Chris Evans is being lined up to appear in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
Bosses of the BBC One dancing show are keen to sign up the 'One Show' presenter and Radio 2 DJ as they think he will be a huge hit with viewers.
A source said: "Chris would be a brilliant signing. He is a TV legend and would bring his own brand of humour and charisma to the show, not to mention nine million Radio 2 fans and five million 'One Show' fans.
"Nothing is confirmed yet but we have our fingers crossed."
Chris is said to be reluctant to sign up but bosses are hoping his 'One Show' co-host Alex Jones can persuade him after she took part last year.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Alex was worried about going on 'Strictly' but loved every minute and has told Chris how much fun it was. The bosses hope her encouragement will swing it."
The next series of 'Strictly' kicks off on BBC One in September and will once again go head-to-head with ITV1's 'X Factor', which starts next month.
