Strictly Come Dancing 2018 line up cast Les Dennis confirms talks after weight loss | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

Les, 64, appeared on This Morning with Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby earlier today to discuss his ongoing project with Sport Relief.

The former Coronation Street star has lost 19 pounds since adopting a healthier lifestyle in order to raise money for the charity. 

Talk quickly turned to the future for Les as Phillip, 55, asked if he would do Strictly Come Dancing

Les spilled: “[The BBC] approached me when I was in Coronation Street and when you’re there you just can’t do it.

“It’s a blanket no for everyone on the soap.”

However, it seemed he would be keen to take part in the competition as he turned to the camera. 

Grinning from ear to ear, Les insisted: “I would love to do Strictly Come Dancing!”

Les is currently taking part in a brutal fitness regime for Sport Relief.

Along with fellow celebrities Tameka Empson, Miles Jump and Susanna Constantine, he has been cutting back on carbs. 

On top of that, they have been playing rugby and rowing across the Thames River for the charity. 

Elsewhere on the Strictly Come Dancing line-up, plenty of names have joined the rumoured cast list. 

Fellow former Coronation Street star, Michelle Keegan, is reportedly on the verge of signing a big money deal for the show. 

She could be joined by Girls Aloud star Cheryl, who has odds of 8/1. 

The Chase’s Mark Labbett is reportedly priced at 2/1 for the BBC talent show while former TOWIE star, Gemma Collins, holds odds of 12/1. 

Finally, Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain has been given an even chance of joining the famous faces on the ballroom. 

This Morning airs weekdays on ITV from 10.30am and Strictly Come Dancing is expected to return to BBC One later this year.
