Rebecca Adlington wants to take part in 'Strictly Come Dancing', and although she is desperate to appear on the show she will have to wait until her daughter is old enough

Rebecca Adlington wants to take part in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The former Olympic swimmer - who previously took part in 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' - would like to learn to dance on the BBC ballroom show, but she has admitted she will have to wait until her two-year-old daughter Summer is a little bit older.

The athlete, who has teamed up with Thomson to launch a special swimming lesson for guests at the TUI Family Life Bellevue Resort in Croatia, said: "'Strictly' is the only one I'd do now, but it is a demanding show and difficult with kids and work, but maybe when Summer is older."

The 28-year-old star - who split from Summer's father, Harry Needs, last year - can next be seen taking part on 'Celebrity MasterChef' and she adored the experience.

She said: "I had the best time. John Torode and Gregg Wallace were lovely. I was really thrown in the deep end though - it was crazy."

Rebecca may be currently single but she'd "love" to have another baby one day.

She said: "I'd really love to [have more kids]. Summer adores her five-month-old cousin. She says, 'Baby' and holds him and strokes his head when he's crying.

"I think she'd love to have a sibling, so maybe one day in the future."

And the blonde athlete thinks the way her body has changed since she had Summer is proof she should have another baby.

She told OK! magazine: "It's so different and I have so many stretch marks but I embrace them. I have a kangaroo pouch and no matter how much I exercise or eat well, it's still there. I think it's because it wants another [baby].

"I do little workouts with summer because I want to show her I'm being healthy. I want her to see her mum putting on a swimsuit and I don't want to see her mum putting herself down."
