Jamelia 'lined up for Strictly'

Jamelia is reportedly set for a stint on Strictly Come Dancing.<br/>The popular BBC show has seen several singing stars hit its floor, including Pixie Lott, who made it through to the quarter-final last year.<br/>Now it looks set to be 34-year-old Jamelia's turn, and sources believe she'll rock the audience.<br/>“Jamelia is going to be a hot favourite right from the start. She’s stunning, has long legs and is experienced with dance routines because of her pop past," an insider confided in British newspaper The Sun.<br/>“We expect her to be at the standard of Pixie Lott, who did really well last year.”<br/>But could the star's turn on the dance floor mean bad blood with rival channel ITV? According the rumours, she was all set to star on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, but switched bugs for ballroom dance at the last minute.<br/>“Jamelia’s been wanted by both shows for a number of years but Strictly makes more sense to her because it will allow her to continue being a mum and to work on Loose Women," a friend explained.<br/>Currently Jamelia juggles appearances on the popular daytime show with looking after her daughters, 14-year-old Teja, who she has with ex Terry Wallen, and Tiani, nine, who she has with her ex-husband Darren Byfield.
