'Emmerdale' star Gemma Oaten wants to go on 'Strictly Come Dancing' so she can learn how to glide across the ballroom

Gemma Oaten wants to compete in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Emmerdale' actress - who plays Rachel Breckle on the ITV soap - is a big fan of the BBC contest and thinks she would learn something from taking part as her footwork is limited at the moment.

She said: "I'd love to do 'Strictly...' I have two left feet and I'd love to learn to dance."

Gemma is also "intrigued" by jungle endurance show 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' but doesn't know if she's brave enough to take part.

She told Closer magazine: "'I'm A Celeb...' always intrigues me - but whether I'd have the guts to do what they do, I don't know."

Meanwhile, on 'Emmerdale', Gemma's alter ego will be left "in fear of her life" following a run-in with Jai Sharma, the father of her son Archie.

She explained: "She discovers Jai locked Charity Dingle in a container and effectively left her for dead.

"She suddenly thinks he's not safe to be around and realises that, if she's canny about it, she can use the information as leverage to make sure he doesn't get Archie.

"Jai has been playing a good game - one minute he's willing to compromise over Archie, the next he's not, and she genuinely feels under threat of losing her son.

"Unfortunately, he comes back even harder He lures her back to the factory and things get very dark.

"Rachel is quite a tough, gutsy character but he leaves her screaming and in fear of her life."
