Fern Britton is keen to try her hand at acting because she is ready for a new "challenge" in her career after taking part in the last series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Fern Britton wants to take up acting.

The 55-year-old presenter is ready for a new "challenge" after taking part in the last series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' but insists she won't get upset if offers don't come flooding in.

She said: "I'd like to do a bit of performing - maybe acting. I've always liked a challenge and I'm ready for a new challenge now. If nothing happens, that's fine by me. The sweet peas in my garden are in and everything is good ..."

However, Fern insists she won't be taking part in any other reality shows.

She said: "I think 'Strictly' is the best, apart from 'I'm A Celebrity...'. But I couldn't face the jungle - there aren't enough sequins in there."

It was recently claimed that 'This Morning' bosses are planning to mark the show's 25th anniversary by staging a reunion for its former presenters, but Fern - who anchored the show between 1999 and 2009 - insists she is in the dark about the plans.

She added to new! magazine: "I can't say anything more, no, as I'm not sure myself what their plans are. But what I would say is that 'This Morning' will always hold a special place in my heart. I feel so lucky to have worked on such an iconic programme and been part of those 25 years."
