Wayne Bridge is in talks with 'Strictly Come Dancing', and he has teased it may be with regards to competing on the show

Wayne Bridge has teased he is in talks to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 36-year-old former England football player appeared on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!" last year, and the sportsman has hinted he is set to put on his "dancing shoes" and take part in another reality show in the future.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the Southampton-born hunk said: "I've been in contact with 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

"So you never know, I could slip my dancing shoes on."

However, Wayne - who has sons Jaydon, 10, from his previous relationship with Vanessa Perroncel, as well as Parker, three, and 20-month-old Carter with his wife Frankie Bridge - has claimed the only reason he is speaking to the BBC One programme's production team is because his partner appeared on the competition in 2014 where she came second.

He explained: "[I've been speaking to the team] mainly because Frankie was on it."

Although Wayne and contestants for the next season have yet to be confirmed, Shirley Ballas has recently been announced as the new judge on the forthcoming season in replace of Len Goodman, who quit the shoe last year.

And the former 'Dancing With the Stars' panellist is "over the moon" she's been chosen to take over as head judge on the ballroom and latin series when it returns to screens this September.

Speaking previously, she said: "I am so excited and over the moon to have been given this wonderful opportunity. I can't wait to get in to the ballroom and be part of the incredible and respected judging panel. 'Strictly Come Dancing' is so loved by the British public, I have always been a massive fan. I just can't wait!"
