The former 'Coronation Street' beauty is being targeted by BBC bosses as they try to secure her talents for the upcoming series in an effort to bring "more glamour" to the show.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday newspaper, a source said: "'Strictly' needs some glamour for the next series and Helen has it by the bucketful.
"She was a huge success on 'I'm a Celebrity' and there is no doubt that she will pull in lots of viewers if the BBC do manage to get her signed up.
"There are talks going on at the moment and fees are being discussed."
As well as her time in the jungle, the 23-year-old star also appeared on 'Celebrity Wedding Planner' and 'Celebrity Super Spa', and show bosses think she could continue a great run on reality TV.
The insider added: "Helen has enjoyed all the reality shows she's appeared in, and always gets a really good response from audiences. She is a big fan of 'Strictly' and this could be a fantastic opportunity."
