EastEnders' Tamzin Outhwaite "desperate" to appear on Strictly next year

However, it may be a limited time offer to take part

Soap star Tamzin Outhwaite has teased signing up for Strictly Come Dancing in 2020.

The EastEnders favourite signalled to BBC bosses she is keen on appearing on the Strictly dance floor next year to make her daughters happy.

She revealed they are "desperate" for her to compete for the Glitterball trophy.

However, it seems Tamzin, 48, may be concerned she is a "bit old" for the show.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, she also suggested she may be not be available to take part beyond the next series after the current one.

She said: "My girls are desperate for me to do it but I think I’m a bit old, I’m not sure my body could take it.

It’s next year or never.

"I’m 49 soon, so part of me thinks I should do it next year as a last hurrah before my fifties."

The Mel Owen actress added: "It’s next year or never."
