Julien MacDonald is wanted for 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The former 'Britain's Next Top Model' judge - who has dressed the likes of Beyoncé, Dannii Minogue and Carmen Electra - has been approached by bosses to appear on the BBC One show as they believe he'll add drama and fun to the new series.
The eccentric fashion designer is yet to seal the deal, but insiders are adamant he'll do so as soon as the star-studded line-up has been finalised.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Julien would be great fun and producers hope he would bring his celeb mates to cheer him on."
It was previously revealed the 15 showbiz stars that have been snapped up to appear on the show will each be handed a lump sum of £25,000 when the competition kicks off next month, regardless of how famous they are, but the competitors still left on the dance floor at the end of October will see their payment rise to £40,000.
The celebrities who make it to the quarter finals will be handed a staggering £60,000 for their efforts, before the fees jump to a hefty sum of £75,000 for those left standing at the end.
Abbey Clancy, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Hairy Bikers cook Dave Myers have already been snapped up by bosses to appear on this year's show, while Vanessa Feltz has expressed her desire be given a slot as she believes it will help her shed a few pounds.
