Strictly Come Dancing fans are vowing to boycott the beloved BBC programme as a politician is rumoured to join the line-up.

Following the General Election and the Conservatives’ blistering loss, it’s no surprise politicians are turning towards reality TV, as former Strictly star and newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murthy warned.

And while she was ahead of Matt Hancock and Nigel Farage in the jungle, it’s now been rumoured that Nadine Dorries could be in line for the ballroom.

The 67-year-old former Culture Secretary, who found herself in hot water for not declaring her I’m A Celebrity fees after her 2012 ITV stint, is tipped for Strictly.

According to Ladbrokes, the politician stands at odds of 5/1 to be announced as a Strictly star, with spokeswoman Jessica O’Reilly saying: ‘Nadine’s certainly not afraid of reality TV shows and we reckon she could soon be swapping politics for the paso doble.’

Reporting on the rumours on Wednesday’s Good Morning Britain, Scarlette Douglas said: ‘She is best known for her controversies in the chamber, but can she drop it on the dancefloor, that is the question?’

Scarlette went on to explain that Nadine, who lasted just 12 days in the jungle, has previously said she’d ‘love’ to do Strictly.

‘And you know what?’ A Place in the Sun presenter Scarlette added. ‘I’m going to be honest, so would I!’

If Nadine Dorries appears on Strictly, I will never watch it again.
