Is the Duchess of Cornwall about to join Strictly Come Dancing?

There will soon be a new vacancy on the BBC dancing show Strictly Come Dancing, as head judge Len Goodman stands down from his position. One of the unlikely names who have been suggested to succeed the 72-year-old judge is none other than The Duchess of Cornwall.

Fellow Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood made the suggestion after the press asked him whether he would like to take over from Mr Goodman.

Craig said: “I don’t want the job (as head judge).

“I would like it to go to somebody else, perhaps somebody unknown.

“Actually my best friend Camilla would’ve great. She’s a fantastic dancer. She moves with such grace and authority.”

Whether Craig can manage to persuade his friend to join the judging panel remains to be seen.

The news comes after Len Goodman, who is also a judge on American show Dancing With The Stars, announced he would step down from the Strictly judging panel after the upcoming series.

This has led to wide speculation over who will replace him, with Jeremy Corbyn suggesting former Prime Minister David Cameron might be up to the job.

The new series of Strictly starts next month with celebrities including politician Ed Balls and singer Anastacia will be taking part.
