Myleene Klass ‘in talks’ with Strictly Come Dancing bosses who want her for the 2020 line-up

Myleene Klass is the latest celebrity to be linked to the line-up of this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The radio host and former Hear'Say bandmember has reportedly been eyed up by Strictly bosses to join the 2020 series, if it was to go ahead when the country eventually is able to leave lockdown.

Myleene, who first found fame as a singer on Popstars, could also appear alongside Nicki Chapman who was a judge on the show.

It's been reported that Myleene is on the Strictly bosses most wanted list, alongside celebrities like Michelle Keegan, Maya Jama and Stacey Solomon who have also been linked with the dancing competition but are not appearing.

If Myleene and Nicki were to appear on the 2020 series it would be the first time the pair would be reunited following the reality singing competition which kickstarted the classical musician's career.

OK! have reached out to the BBC and Myleene Klass for comment.

Myleene auditioned for the show in 2001 and went on to win it alongside Suzanne Shaw, Kym Marsh, Noel Sullivan and Danny Foster as the band Hear'Say which had been formed on the series.

Hear'Say went head-to-head with Liberty X – made up of Michelle Heaton, Kelli Young, Kevin Simm, Jessica Taylor and Tony Lundon – but ultimately came out on top and went to score a number one hit with Pure and Simple.

Their second single The Way to Your Love gave them their second number one single, with their album Popstars also achieving the number one slot.

By 2002 the band split, with Kym Marsh going on to secure a spot on Coronation Street as Michelle Connor, a role she recently left after 13 years on the soap.

Meanwhile Myleene has enjoyed huge success as a TV and radio presenter and more recently a self-appointed music teacher helping children to learn virtually during lockdown.

Former Popstars judge Nicki Chapman, who managed the likes of Spice Girls, Kylie Minogue, Will Young and S Club 7, is now a television presenter.

According to the Daily Star: “Strictly want both to be in the line-up. They are household names and haven’t really worked together since Popstars so it would be an amazing reunion."

Most recently Love Island star Olivia Bowen shared her desire to compete on Strictly, saying she would love to appear.

She said on Jose Cuervo's online cocktail series Ready Steady Cuervo: "No, I’m not [taking part in Stricty] I wish I was! Yeah, I am the kind of person to say, never say never, so if something comes up, then I’d give it a go.

"I’d love to do Strictly! That would probably be the one that I go for as I used to dance when I was younger."
