Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly, 43, are currently tied up with their duties to Britain’s Got Talent, with the Geordie duo seen presenting the audition round of the ITV talent show.
However, Dec may be taking a break from his presenting duties later this year to fill a spot in the Strictly Come Dancing 2019 line-up, well, if one former professional had their way.
Vincent Simone, 40, starred as a professional dancer on the BBC dance show from 2006 until 2012 alongside his professional partner, Flavia Cacace, 39.
The Italian performed a Tango with Flavia on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway in 2015, with the Geordie duo taking to the stage for the End Of The Show Show.
Dec Dances His Heart Out
Recently, Vincent took to social media to write a throwback post to Flavia, with a short clip of the former Strictly stars performing the routine on the ITV show.
Posting on Twitter, Vincent wrote: “Dec Dances His Heart Out In The End Of The Show Show - Saturday Night [email protected] Remember this.”
However, the likelihood Dec will be filling one of the coveted positions in the line-up is very slim as at the same time the final stages of the dance competition are underway, the Geordie presenter is hosting I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!.
Although Vincent may have been hoping his post could convince the presenter, it seems Dec is fully committed to his role Down Under.
With the line-up to be announced in the lead up to the 2019 series later this year, one major absence from the show will be former judge, Dame Darcey Bussell, 50.
Darcey announced her departure from the judging panel last month, having been a familiar face to Strictly audiences since 2012.
