Ex EastEnders star Ross Kemp drops HUGE hint about doing Strictly Come Dancing

Could the actor be getting his dancing shoes at the ready?

Now this is something we ALL want to see, Ross Kemp putting on his dancing shoes for BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The former EastEnders star revealed that he’s a massive fan of the show and would “never say never” to going on the show.

Ross admitted he was asked to take part back in 2008 but turned the offer down following a traumatic documentary series he filmed.

Ross, 53, told the Daily Star: “I love Strictly Come Dancing. I have been asked before.

“I was going to do it. Then I got home from Camp Bastion after being shot at and thought ‘No, don’t be so silly’.

When asked about whether he would take to the dance floor Ross admitted: “I’ll never say never to anything.”

Please let this happen!

EastEnders’ favourites Grant and Phil Mitchell were seen dancing to 90s classic Kung Fu Fighting in the Queen Vic.

The clip never actually made it on screens but definitely made its way around social media.

In the footage the duo can be seen performing a dance routine before taking their kit off much to the horror of their mum Peggy Mitchell.

Since leaving Walford behind Ross has delved into hosting documentary series Extreme World where he looks at everything from drugs, war and poverty around the world.

The star is currently fronting the brand new series, which airs on Sky 1, but this will be the final series of the show.

It’s believed that TV bosses are looking at moving away from factual documentaries which means Extreme World will be axed after this series.

A spokesperson for the channel told The Sun: “Our focus for Sky1 this year is offering customers even more great drama, comedy and factual entertainment.

“Going forward we are shifting away from commissioning factual shows on the channel, and Ross Kemp’s Extreme World will be coming to an end after its upcoming series.”

The sixth series is currently being showed on our screens.

In the third episode, which airs tonight at 10pm, the star will be heading to the Phillipines to meet those affected by the killing of thousands of people in President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs.

Earlier in the month the actor appeared on ITV’s This Morning to talk about the new show.

Speaking about a specific moment in the series Ross admitted he wanted to kill a man – who confessed to killing around 300 girls.

He told hosts Amanda Holden and Ben Shephard: “Over the series it’s been really hard and the hardest for me was in India when I met someone who was trafficking young girls for sex.

“And he’s on camera, I didn’t know he was going to do it, and admitted to killing around 300 of them.”

“My translator heard it first and started crying, then he started crying and I got so angry because he started feeling sorry for himself.

“I don’t mind meeting bad people and interviewing them but when they start feeling sorry for themselves and the things that they do. That was the only time I really nearly lost it,” he added.
