Children's TV presenters Dick and Dom are reportedly the first double act to ever take part in 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Dick and Dom are to appear on the next series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The children's TV presenters - whose full names are Richard McCourt and Dominic Wood - will be the first double act to take part in the show, though the 'Are You Smarter Than A Ten Year Old?' hosts will not dance together, being paired with professional females instead.
Dick and Dom - who shot to fame in 2002 with weekend morning show 'Dick and Dom In Da Bungalow' - are hoping the show will help carve out a more "grown-up" career path.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "They're keen and the BBC is keen so it's looking all set for a Dick and Dom ballroom special."
Though the line-up for this year's 'Strictly' - which returns to TV in September - has not been announced, stars including Slade singer Noddy Holder and soccer player Michael Owen are reportedly in the frame for the show.
Spice Girls singer Mel C has admitted she would like to take part because her four-year-old daughter Scarlet is a fan.
She said recently: "Scarlet loves dancing and she loves 'Strictly'.
"I think I'll have to do it just to make her proud. I'm a fan too, so you never know."
And 'Neighbours' actor Stefan Dennis, who plays villainous Paul Robinson, would also put on his dancing shoes for the contest.
He said last month: "I want to do 'Strictly Come Dancing'. My wife wants me to do it because I have got two left feet and she is a professional dancer.
"For me, 'Strictly Come Dancing' isn't a reality TV programme, it is a talent show. Talent shows have been around forever. People love them."
