Emma Samms Would Love To Do Strictly

Former Dynasty actress Emma Samms would love to take part in Strictly, but doesn't think she'll be asked because she did ballet as a youngster. She also thinks that her time on Tumble stands against her.

She told the Belfast Telegraph: "I'd love to do Strictly but I think now that I've done Tumble I won't be asked. Partly because it's similar and partly because I was a bit of an awkward customer on Tumble. I was at the Royal Ballet School, and they like a journey on that show. Even though it was a very, very long time ago, I think that might be what's always scuppered my chances of doing Strictly. But I love dancing, I'd absolutely adore to do Strictly, because dancing - when you get it right it's the best feeling in the world."

I didn't watch Tumble (did anyone), so I'm not sure that would be a barrier. If people can do the Strictly Christmas special and then the main series, I don't think it would be an issue. And both series are on the BBC. It's not like doing Dancing On Ice and then Strictly.

The ballet thing wouldn't be an issue for the show, but perhaps for the public. The public often feel those with dance experience are 'ringers' and rarely win, although they frequently make the final. Natalie Gumede and Denise Van Outen are just two examples.
