Pippa Middleton wanted for Strictly Come Dancing
Dec 24, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Pippa Middleton is being targeted by 'Strictly Come Dancing' bosses for next year's series.
Show chiefs are said to be 'very keen' to sign the brunette beauty - the sister of Britain's Duchess Catherine - up to the BBC One dancing competition, and it is hoped she might accept a position on the programme in 2013 because it is regarded as 'tasteful'.
A source told The Sun newspaper: 'It is universally viewed as tasteful so there is very little stopping Pippa.
'Bosses will be very keen to get her, but they approach a lot of people every year.'
Pippa - who shot to fame last year as the maid of honour at her sister and Prince William's wedding, when her shapely behind made headlines - turned down an offer to star on 'Strictly' in 2011, but producers are hopeful she will sign in 2013 as publicity from the wedding has died down.
'Strictly' judge Bruno Tonioli thinks Pippa - who could receive a five-figure sum to star on the show -would look 'amazing' on the programme.
He said: 'She has great buttocks and would look amazing in the dresses.'
Should the 29-year-old beauty sign up for the programme then she will have at least two royal supporters in the shape of Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, who are known to be big fans of the programme.
Kimberley Walsh recently revealed the Duchess of Cornwall was backing her to triumph in the latest series, which was won by Olympic gymnast Louis Smith on Saturday night (22.12.12).
The Girls Aloud singer tweeted last month: 'Camilla is still rooting for me and Pasha. She said she loved our Tango yey. (sic)'
The BBC explained: 'No one's been asked yet.'
