Kym Marsh is in talks to appear on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The former 'Coronation Street' star has been "repeatedly" approached by producers to take part in the show over the years but it was never the "right time" for her compete, but show bosses are hopeful that this year she will say yes to their offer.

A source told the Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Kym has been repeatedly approached by Strictly over the years, but it has never been the right time for her to say yes.

“Conversations are ongoing and she is considering if she wants to go ahead. Meanwhile the BBC are doing everything they can to persuade her.”

And Kym isn't the only name in the frame for the new series as former England and Arsenal defender Tony Adams is said to be in advanced talks to appear on the show.

An insider said: "This is shaping up to be a fantastic year for Strictly. They are thrilled to have brought a footballing legend of Tony’s stature to the table.

“And they are pulling out all the stops to sign Kym as well. She has been a target for them for years, and while it is not a done deal, they are very hopeful.

“She has her offer and is considering her options.”

The 55-year-old sportsman - who famously dropped Steve Morrow during their celebrations at the 1993 League Cup Final, breaking his pal's arm - is looking forward to the "challenge" of 'Strictly', and hopes to win viewers over with his sense of humour.

A source said: “Tony is a really good sport and has a great sense of humour, which people will get to see for themselves on the 'Strictly' dance floor.

“He is also not afraid of a challenge and will get really stuck in.

“Tony is really excited about 'Strictly'. He’s a better mover than people think. He really looks after himself, far more than most 50-somethings.

“So he might well spring a few surprises.

“His future dance partners might want to be a bit wary when it comes to lifts though — he does have a bit of form for letting go when it counts.”
