Louis Walsh wants to do Strictly Come Dancing

Louis Walsh wants to star on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 62-year-old music manager - who's reportedly been dropped from the judging panel of rival reality TV show 'The X Factor' - has revealed that although he has no dancing skills, he'd love to follow in the footsteps of Caroline Flack by appearing on the BBC show.

Louis said: "I can't dance at all, that's why it'll [Strictly] be so good. I'd like to be partnered with Ola.

"I was in touch with Caroline when she was sacked and she took a big chance when she went on Strictly."

Meanwhile, Louis also denied suggestions he'd been "sacked" from 'The X Factor' by music mogul Simon Cowell and admitted he'd be open to a return.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The truth is I've done it for 11 years, I never thought I would even be on TV for four or five. To get 10 was great, to get 11 was amazing, I'm not hanging around for them this year.

"I haven't been sacked, I can honestly tell you that, but I'm not hanging around for them this year because I want to go back to being a manager. I'm basically going back to my roots, which is the reason I got into this business - music. I love music.

"But I wasn't sacked, I haven't been hired and I'm not hanging around."
