Footie star lining up as first celeb for Strictly Come Dancing

Wayne Bridge is open to joining Strictly after his wife Frankie’s stint on the show.

The former footballer and I’m A Celeb star was a regular in the Strictly audience in 2014 – where he watched The Saturdays singer come runner-up to Caroline Flack.

And it clearly had an effect on him.

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star Online, the 36-year-old said: “I’ve been in contact with Strictly Come Dancing, mainly because Frankie was on it.

“So you never know, I could slip my dancing shoes on.”

Bridge – who played for Chelsea and Manchester City during a 16-year career – also refused to rule out joining Celebrity Big Brother.

Despite originally saying no chance, he admitted: “I said not a chance to Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, so you know – never say never.”

The retired star was popular with viewers when he joined the Jungle in last year’s season – but it wasn’t without its difficulties.
