Emma Willis has said she would sign up to Strictly Come Dancing "in a heartbeat", if her schedule would allow it.

The TV presenter explained the BBC dancing competition took place over the autumn and winter when she would usually be filming for The Voice and The Circle, the latter of which was cancelled earlier this year.

Willis, 45, told The Sun: "If I had time, I would do it in a heartbeat. Like I absolutely love it.

“I’ve been asked in the past but it’s always the time of year when we’re filming The Voice and The Circle.

The Circle is not happening this year, but let’s hope The Voice is — otherwise I will be doing Strictly.”

Her latest pre-recorded presenting gig will start on ITV next Tuesday as she hosts Cooking With The Stars where Strictly judge Shirley Ballas is among the famous contestants putting their culinary skills to the test

Asked if Ballas, 60, had tried to persuade her to sign up to Strictly, Willis replied: "She does not need to convince me to go on Strictly.”

Other stars on the cooking series include Denise Van Outen, Catherine Tyldesley, Johnny Vegas, Naughty Boy and AJ Odudu.

Harry Judd, McBusted bandmate to Willis' husband Matt, is also taking part. He's also got a Strictly connection too having won the competition in 2011 alongside professional Aliona Vilani.

It was recently announced that Anton Du Beke had been promoted to full-time judge for the upcoming series in the absence of Bruno Tonioli.
