Catherine Tyldesley stokes rumours for next year’s Strictly Come Dancing

We reckon this Strictly superfan would be keen!

Fans are backing former Corrie star Catherine Tyldesley to hit the Strictly dancefloor next year after she was snapped with a very familiar face from the BBC One series.

Cath, 35, shared a pic of herself wearing a tremendous leopard print dress and Strictly veteran pro Anton du Beke on Instagram earlier today.

Both stars were apparently at the same bash yesterday evening – and it seems like neither had an early night after she described the do in the caption as “late night shenanigans”.

Another pic posed with pals suggested the event may have been a party at ITV Studios in London.

She also hinted at a perfect professional partnership between the pair, hashtagging the image #goteam.

Could the ex Eva Price actress be readying herself for a go on Strictly next year? Or is she just teasing?

Many of her followers immediately jumped on the idea, keen to see Catherine strut her stuff.

“Strictly 2019 👍🏼yes Hun???” asked one fan on Instagram.

“You should totally do strictly x,” added another.

It isn’t the first time Catherine has been linked with a spot on Strictly.

Earlier this year she was heavily tipped to appear on this year’s series after departing Weatherfield.

But she set the record straight in the summer when she told her 400,000+ Twitter followers she would not be involved… this time around, anyway.

Catherine’s also never hidden the fact she’d love to take part in the show, issuing several ‘come and get me pleas’ and tweeting along with the programme on social media on several occasions.

She tweeted last August: “I ADORE the show. And maybe one day!

“But to put an end to constant rumours – I’m not involved this year.

“But as always can’t wait to watch it!! My total fave!!”

Could next year be the year?
