Miranda's Tom Ellis for Strictly Come Dancing?

Tom Ellis is being lined up to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Miranda' star is reportedly in talks with BBC bosses to take part in the upcoming series of the celebrity dance contest having failed to secure him in previous years.

A source told Radio Times magazine: "The show has been keen to have Tom take part for the last few years.

"He'd be a great name to put in the mix."

The 36-year-old actor - who has children Florence, Nora and Marnie with ex-wife Tamsin Outhwaite - is currently in the US filming the pilot for Fox series 'Lucifer'.

However, he's previously demonstrated an interest in 'Strictly' when he appeared on the spin-off show 'It Takes Two' in 2011 to advise the contestants on how to improve their routines.

While he claimed he wanted more precision from Holly Vallance, he thought Chelsee Healey should have shown more attack in the Argentine Tango.

Other stars rumoured to be signing up to battle it out for the glitterball trophy this year include Joe McElderry, Adrian Chiles, Karen Danczuk and Angie Best.
