Former EastEnders star, Ross Kemp, has dropped a major hint that he plans to take to the Strictly Come Dancing dance-floor.
The actor turned documentary maker claimed that if he was going to do any talent show, it would be BBC’s Strictly, even confessing he had planned to take to the ballroom in the past.
“I have been asked before,” he admitted, in an interview with The Sun.

“I was going to do it. Then I got home from Camp Bastion after being shot at and thought: ‘No, don’t be so silly.’ “
This isn’t the first time Phil Mitchell’s on-screen brother left fans speculating he would be going on the much loved talent show, after the 53-year-old previously came over all coy when asked by the Loose Women panel whether he would ever do the show.
When quizzed by Andrea McLean, Ross responded: ‘Never say never,” causing viewers to go wild with excitement.

While Ross kept us wondering whether he would don a glittery costume on the next series of the show, he appeared to throw doubt over an EastEnders return as he moaned about always being associated with bad boy Grant.
According to The Sun, when asked if he was looking forward to bumping into his old pal Steve McFadden at the National Television Awards he shook his head and groaned: “Everyone always asks for ‘Phil and Grant’ selfies.”
However, he did hint that he would be keen to keen to expand his repertoire, and would love a role in hit fantasy series Game Of Thrones.

Talking about how enthusiastic he was for a role on the hit series, he even suggested he’d be happy to get naked for the racy HBO show.
“I am fine in that department,” he said, when discussing getting his kit off alongside the likes of Kit Harrington and Emilia Clarke.
Since EastEnders, Ross has forged a name for himself making documentaries about hard hitting topics such as homelessness, drug addiction, violence and poverty.
