Nancy to make Strictly comeback?

Nancy Dell'Olio has hinted she may be "doing more than watching" the next series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The Italian lawyer, who entertained viewers on last year's show with her over-the-top routines, has been tipped for a place on the panel when the programme returns to screens minus ex-judge Alesha Dixon.

When asked if she'd tune in for the new series, Nancy teased: "Probably. I might be doing more than watching, who knows. I can't tell you any more."

If she did land a role as a judge, Nancy vowed to bring a much-needed injection of glamour to the panel.

"I would be myself. I would be the one absolutely on the contestants' side, in a funny and a nice way. I would bring a lot of glamour. They would need some changes there. They need a little retouch," she joked.

As for the possibility of hosting the show, Nancy said: "If Brucie (Forsyth) decides to walk away then we'll see. There are going to be big changes after Bruce leaves."

Nancy - who attended this week's Tric Awards, where Strictly was crowned best reality programme - also revealed how she stays looking good.

"I'm lucky. Real beauty comes after 20 - when you're 20 you're not beautiful. It has to be in your genes, but I do have a disciplined life as well," she explained.

"When you're 20 it's too easy, you have the face that God gave to you. But when you're 50 you have the face and body that you deserve."
