Bonnie Langford wants to secure a gig on next year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' but is worried bosses won't have her because she competed on 'Dancing on Ice' in 2006
Bonnie Langford wants to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'EastEnders' actress is desperate to slip into a crystal-embellished gown and hit the dance floor for the Ballroom and Latin show but she's terrified people will criticise her for having a head start as she previously took part in 'Dancing on Ice' in 2006.
She explained: "I would love it, as I've never ballroom-danced before. I think it would be difficult, thought, because people would see me as a trained dancer and therefore not on a level playin gfield with the other contestants. I had a lot of that when I was on 'Dancing On Ice', and I was like 'Are you kidding? Skating is polar opposite' So I think I'm better off watching and supporting."
But, although she doesn't think bosses will want her to take part in the competition next year, the 52-year-old star has her eye on the judging panel as Len Goodman is set to bow out after this year.
Asked if she would take a spot on the judging panel, she said: "Now that would be fun. Oh my God, I would absolutely love it!"
However, for now, Bonnie will support her co-star Tameka Empson on the forthcoming series of the dancing programme.
She told Inside Soap magazine: "I think Tameka is going to be fabulous and brilliant. I think she's going to feel exhausted, bless her, as we often film Christmas an new year on 'EastEnders' while 'Strictly...' is on. I might buy her a foot roller as I think she's going to need one. Her poor feet will be crippled every week."
