Jennifer Ellison has confessed she wants the girls on her TV show 'Dance Mums' to go up against the young dancers on the US version 'Dance Moms'
Jennifer Ellison wants a UK versus US version of 'Dance Mums'.
The former 'Brookside' actress fronts 'Dance Mums With Jennifer Ellison', which follows a number of young dancers at her Fame Academy school in Liverpool and their pushy parents, and she's confessed she wants to see her girls go up against the girls on the US version.
In the United States, 'Dance Moms' follows dance teacher Abby Lee Miller as she deals with difficult parents and their darling child performers as they take their first steps on the road to stardom.
Quizzed on whether there's plans for the two shows to join forces, Jennifer exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "There is, there's talks, so we're just going to see how this goes and then go from there. I'd love it to get another series, I'd love to follow the girls' stories and careers.
"I'd love to do the UK versus the US, my girls versus her [Abby] girls. I think that would be an amazing show. It would just be really exciting and really great TV."
The 31-year-old star also claimed she'd be more than capable of standing her ground against Abby, who has become notorious for her no-nonsense attitude on the US show.
Jennifer said: "I could give her a run for her money, no problem. I've been in this industry for nineteen years and done various West End shows and won every title there is to win in dance so yeah I can give her a run for her money."
'Dance Mums With Jennifer Ellison' is on Mondays at 9pm on Lifetime (Sky 156 / Virgin 242 / TalkTalk 490)
