Peter Crouch Set To Be Greatest Star Of All Time As “BBC Approaches For Series”
Peter Crouch could trade in his football boots for dance shoes as the bosses of Strictly Come Dancing have him in the sights to take part in the upcoming 2021 series.
The 40-year-old sports giant is a top pick for the creators of Strictly – who are busy planning the long-running talent show’s next 19th series, which is due to hit screens next month.
Peter would be the greatest contender to ever be on the show, if he agreed to appear – while he would also follow in the footsteps of his wife, Abbey Clancy, who played and won the show’s 11th series he a long time ago. in 2013.
The BBC already knows Peter is a hit with viewers – with his sports and musical animated series Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, and his hit Euro Cup entertainment show Crouchy’s Year Late Euros: Live.
And it looks like the Beebs are keen to call on Peter to show off his footwork on the ballroom floor when Strictly returns in the coming weeks.
The Sun on Sunday quotes a source from the show as saying, âPeter is extremely popular and would be a phenomenal signing.
âThe casting team was particularly excited because he had such a high profile during the Euros.
“The taller men struggled, but he would stand out a mile on the dance floor.”
Wife Abbey – with whom Peter shares four children – has previously discussed the former striker’s dancing skills, revealing that he usually needs a little Dutch courage to go wild on the dance floor.
Speaking on the time of her own Strictly victory in 2013, the model said: “We’re dancing – after a few drinks.”
And then assessing Peter’s dancing ability, Abbey went on to say that the gangly sports star had “two left feet.”
However, the star herself is smart when it comes to drawing attention to his dancing skills, as he often celebrated goals when he was a footballer by performing a ‘robot’ dance for the most. great fan delight.
Peter’s size could make the logistics on Strictly difficult for professional dance professionals as he would dominate them all.
The star is 6 feet 7 inches tall while professional dancers such as slub-haired Australian Dianne Buswell are 5 feet 3 inches tall.
Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman are set to resume their presentation duties on Strictly next month when he returns to screens – with Craig Revel Horwood, Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse all set to return to their judges’ seats.
The original show’s judge, Bruno Tonioli, is set to be replaced by Anton du Beke for the 2021 season as he has chosen to work on Dancing With The Stars in the US instead of Strictly, the Covid restrictions and the travel chaos preventing him from flying between the two shows as he has done in the past.
