Britain's Got Talent winner Ashleigh Butler looks set to star on this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

She's keen to try out a different performing style (minus Pudsey, sob) after wowing audiences on Britain's Got Talent.

She told The Daily Star newspaper: "I'd love to do Strictly. It would be nice to show people who I am. I can dance. I mainly do contemporary but I reckon that I could try ballroom."

Ashleigh then joked she would've liked to have seen how far Pudsey could have progressed on Britain's Got Talent without her help.

She quipped: "Some people say, 'Why doesn't Pudsey just ditch her?' But I'd like to see how he would have done without me."

Should Ashleigh sign up for Strictly she will meet Venezuelan beauty Karen Hauer, who has joined this year's show as a professional dancer. Karen replaces Katya Virshilas - who was dropped after three series on the talent show - and she can't wait to get started on the programme.

She told The Sun newspaper: "If I could dance how I feel about joining 'Strictly', you'd see how excited I am!"

Karen will join a host of fellow professionals on the show including Ola Jordan, Anton Du Beke, Artem Chigvintsev, Brendan Cole, James Jordan, Pasha Kovalev and Kristina Rihanoff.

Earlier this week, former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan signed up for 'Strictly' after his close pal Robbie Savage encouraged him to get involved.

We can't wait!
