Christine McGuinness begs Strictly bosses to sign her up for 2020 series

Dirty Dancing is her favourite movie

Paddy McGuinness has been a huge hit on the BBC thanks to his stint as Top Gear presenter.

Now his wife Christine, 31, has revealed that she wants to follow suit and appear on another of the corporation's top-rating programmes - dance competition, Strictly Come Dancing.

The Sun reports that Christine was speaking at an awards ceremony in Dublin and the mum-of-three 'pleaded' with bosses to sign her up.

Furthermore, she said Paddy, 46, would 'be fine' with the so-called Strictly curse.

Looking glammed-up wearing a slinky red dress with a silver belt, Christine told the outlet: "I would love to do Strictly.

"Learning a new skill and wearing sparkles... I am there.

I have always wanted to learn to dance like they do in Dirty Dancing too. It’s my fave movie.

The latest rumours of the Strictly curse hitting again were dismissed by Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse.

The pair, who are both married, won 2019's competition after beating out EastEnders' Emma Barton and Anton Du Beke, and Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden.

But despite rumours of a deeper friendship between the pair, Oti, 29, poured scorn on the online chatter.

She told Fabulous magazine: "There's nothing there. We're acting and we're doing it through dance.

"If people want to assume what they want to assume, then that's on them.

"The way we think of it as dancers is that it's technically two bodies that are trying to move as one. That's how I work and that's how I choreograph, and my celebs understand it. This is the job. We want to win!"

Recently, Christine described the 'awful aftermath' of  Christmas.

"I wasn’t ready for the aftermath following Christmas Day, it has has been awful," she said. "I think I prepared them so much for Christmas Day, I didn’t prepare them for it to end.

"I’m still learning every day and next year will be better again."
