Shirley Ballas Tipped For Judge Role

Just when you think there can't be any more names in the frame for Len's job on Strictly, the tabloids come up with someone else.

The Sun has reported that Shirley Ballas has had a second audition for the role, after impressing producers with her screen test last week.

Shirley is well-known and respected on the ballroom circuit. She won multiple Latin titles with partner and ex-husband Corky Ballas. She has also coached dancers, including Derek Hough and Julianne Hough, and her own son Mark. She has been a guest judge on Dancing With The Stars in the US.

A source told the paper: “They are definitely interested in Shirley and she’s the only one they’ve wanted to have another look at, which has to be a good sign. She has a ballroom background, like Len, and BBC chiefs are keen to appoint another woman soon now that the audition list has got out. No decision has been made though yet as there’s still some who want a show favourite to land the role for the fans and keep continuity.”

I'd be happy as Shirley as a judge. She has the experience, and comes from the ballroom and latin world.
