Tennis star Andy Murray's mum Judy is reportedly in talks to appear in the upcoming series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' after BBC bosses failed to secure his girlfriend in the past
Andy Murray's mum Judy could be set to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The tennis star's 54-year-old mother is reportedly being lined up to take part in the BBC One ballroom dancing competition later this year after they failed to persuade his girlfriend Kim Sears to compete.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Judy would be great. It's wonderful that she's such a fan. Kim has declined in the past. We would love a Murray in some form."
Judy's close friend and former tennis ace Andrew Castle - who took part in 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2008 - has revealed that he thinks she would jump at the chance to try and impress with her dancing skills.
He said: "She's a huge 'Strictly' nut and would love to do the show. I reckon she'd surprise people. I'm sure she's got the moves."
Andy - who became the first British man to win Wimbledon in over 70 years last summer - would be encouraging of his mum, according to Andrew, who also claims Judy would be able to fit the competition in with her responsibilities as the captain of the Fed Cup women's tennis event.
He added: "Andy would be supportive but might be embarrassed and have to watch through his fingers.
"She has Fed Cup captain duties but it's possible to do both, I think."
