Strictly and Dancing On Ice fighting over a superstar WAG

Wow this WAG is popular

| Updated:

Oh goodness gracious, roll on September! PLEASE.

That way we’ll know who is going to be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.

We’re in June, now so celeb bookers are currently in the process of sealing the deal with stars for the BBC dancing juggernaut.

As yet, there are few names being bandied about, although it has been reported that Matt Goss is one of those already confirmed.

According to The Sun, he has been signed up by the Beeb, after he triumphed at the Christmas special back in 2013.

But now we have a new name that has been thrown into the mix – Coleen Rooney.

Yes, footballer Wayne’s wife.

Once upon a time she was the queen of the WAGS (well, after Victoria Beckham) and graced many an OK! cover back in the day.

She also went on to front her own TV show Coleen’s Real Women and launched a fitness DVD.

But for the past few years, our Col took a step back from the limelight and has instead enjoyed being a mum of three to her boys Kai, Klay and Kit.

According to The Daily Star, Strictly bosses are desperate to get Coleen to don some dancing shoes for this summer’s series.

They reckon she has the likeability factor for viewers to tune in week in week out to see how she does.

But it would seem that Strictly bosses aren’t the only ones with Coleen on their minds.

The top bods at ITV are reportedly currently casting the new series of Dancing On Ice.

They too think Coleen has the pulling power to woo viewers and are apparently throwing mega bucks her way.

The Daily Star say the shows are now are prepared to “break the bank” to land the veteran WAG.

But with Strictly reportedly paying all their celebs the SAME starting fee would they really get caught up in a bidding war with another show over someone?

Strictly stars’ fees only rise if they make it to the semis and rise again if they make it to the final.

“Coleen is very hot property,” a mystery source told the daily paper. “She has a massive following of fans. But she is also married to the former England captain.

“With any project she does, Wayne is bound to be by her side supporting her. Having him in the studio audience would be great for any show.”

A source said: “Coleen is someone the public really relate to, so she’d be great for reality TV.” (credit: BBC)

The source added: “Coleen is someone the public really relate to, so she’d be great for reality TV.

“This would be the perfect chance for Coleen to show what she’s made of.”

Other stars rumoured to be taking part include Joan Collins, fitness guru Joe Wicks and Olympian Paula Radcliffe. But also expect the usual box tickers: an EastEnders cast member and a BBC Breakfast presenter.

We can’t wait to find out who will be sparkling on Strictly and shivering on Ice.
