Victoria Pendleton wants to appear on 'Strictly Come Dancing' because of the glamorous costumes

Victoria Pendleton wants to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The Olympic cyclist would love the chance to take part in the celebrity ballroom dancing contest because she wants to wear the glamorous stage outfits.

Asked about the possibility of appearing on 'Strictly', she said: "Well I tell you what if they do ring me I'd be very interested I have to say. The idea of being very glamorous, it definitely appeals to me. After wearing Lycra suits and tracksuits for so long and not a lot of make-up I think yeah that would be good fun."

Now the Olympics are over, Victoria would have plenty of time to train for 'Strictly' as she is turning her back on cycling.

Speaking to Kate Thornton on 'Lorraine', she said: "I'm retired from sport only I would just like to clarify, not entirely, I will have to get a proper job after this!

"The only other job I have had actually was pulling pints in my local pub in between university, sort of on holidays so I'm going to have to do a lot of work experience I think probably, watch this space - maybe we'll find out what I'll do quite soon."
