Gogglebox's Steph and Dom tipped for next series of Strictly Come Dancing

The stars said they’re concentrating on not falling off the stage on Let’s Sing And Dance For Comic Relief.

Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker have been tipped for the next series of Strictly Come Dancing – although the couple are not focusing on ballroom just yet.

The pair, who will be performing as Cher and Meat Loaf in Let’s Sing And Dance For Comic Relief on Saturday, are seen by TV bosses as a great signing for the autumn series, The Sun reports.

And the couple told the Press Association: “At the moment we are concentrating on giving our all tomorrow for Comic Relief and trying not to fall off the stage.”

The Sun said Strictly chiefs are viewing their performance on the Comic Relief show, presented by Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, as a trial for the new series of Strictly and they think they could provide the same entertainment factor as Ed Balls did last year.

A BBC source was quoted as saying: “Dom has the potential to provide great routines like Ed did and Steph would be fantastic going up against the judges.”

Steph and Dom Parker became stars following their tipsy appearances on Channel 4 show Gogglebox.

Ore Oduba was crowned the winner of the 2016 series of Strictly, which also saw Len Goodman bow out of his role as head judge.
