James 'Arg' Argent has claimed he is "definitely" being considered for the new series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'
James 'Arg' Argent is in the running for the new series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'Only Way is Essex' star has long been a fan of the BBC ballroom contest and his dream of being a contestant could come true this year as he says he is "definitely" being considered by producers.
He said: "I want to do Strictly this year and I'm definitely in their thoughts.
And Arg thinks he would have a good chance of winning - and hopes the show could take him further towards his ambition of starring in a West End show.
He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I can dance. I have got rhythm. I would shock people with my moves.
"I have always dreamed of being in the West End and so this show suits me down to the ground."
Insiders think 'Strictly' would be perfect for Arg as he could easily juggle 'TOWIE' filming in the week with his rehearsals and Saturday night performances on the celebrity dance contest.
However, the reality TV star is also open to following in the footsteps of his former co-stars Joey Essex and Mark Wright and taking part in 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!'.
He added: "I could do the jungle. I've had good practice.
"I once ate some dodgy jellied eels."
