The 72-year-old star - who is best known for being the only significant female performer in the 'Monty Python' TV series and films - is to take to the dancefloor in the upcoming series of the BBC One dance contest.
Carol - who is has also made appearances in classic British comedies such as 'Only Fools and Horses', 'The Two Ronnies' and 'Morecambe and Wise' - is in talks with BBC bosses and is said to be looking forward to proving that the older generation have still got it.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Carol is confident she'll be able to give it a go and not just be another old duffer."
The blonde beauty - who recently joined 'Monty Python' stars John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam on stage for their 'Monty Python Live (Mostly): One Down, Five to Go' reunion shows - could be set to join former 'The Only Way is Essex' star Mark Wright and Kelly Brook's ex-boyfriend Thom Evans on the upcoming series, as they are both reported to have been approached to compete.
