Strictly salsa for singer Faith

Paloma Faith has confessed she'd love to show off her footwork skills on Strictly Come Dancing.

The flame-haired singer performed her hit Upside Down during one of the live shows during the last series of the BBC One contest, and admitted she'd like to visit the show again.

"I think I'd quite like to try it because I used to be a dancer. I'm really good at salsa, so maybe I should do it," she revealed.

Paloma - who performed at the Guinness Arthur's Day celebrations in Dublin - said the show's glitzy costumes would be "right up my street", but admitted she wasn't a regular viewer of it.

"I don't have a television so I don't watch anything," she said.

"(Appearing on it) was fun, it was a good silly thing to do, a bit tongue in cheek."

And she said of her own colourful dress sense: "I think it gives me confidence to go out and be happy about who I am so it's very important. I think I'd feel a bit exposed if I didn't do it."

The new series of Strictly kicks off on BBC One on September 30.
