I can't dance, but I want to be on Strictly - Sam

REALITY television starlet Sam Faiers has said she dreams of being snapped up for Strictly Come Dancing - even though she has two left feet.

The Only Way is Essex (TOWIE) star was in Dublin to promote her lingerie range, but the 23-year old was so taken with the city that she's returning to hit all the tourist hotspots next month.

Sam also said she wouldn't rule out further forays into reality TV.

"My dream would be to do Strictly because I can't dance, so I'd be setting myself a challenge and picking up a skill and the costumes would be amazing," she said.


On top her flying visit to promote Ann Summers lingerie, she said: "I absolutely love Dublin - I get a really friendly vibe in the city, everyone can't help you enough.

"I've been to the clubs, bars and restaurants but hopefully when I'm back next month we'll just take a day so I can do all the touristy stuff and see Dublin for real."

Sam, who was looking tanned and happy after recently returning from holiday in Ibiza with boyfriend and former TOWIE cast-mate Joey Essex, said she had her health back on track.

The boutique owner was diagnosed with Crohn's disease shortly after her spell in the Celebrity Big Brother house in January.

"I'm in phase two of remission and I take a tablet every day now to keep inflammation at bay, but I do live a normal life - I just stay away from certain foods and alcoholic drinks," she said.

Sam, whose weight plunged by a stone when her condition was at its worst, said she has been thrilled with the reaction she has received after speaking about the illness.

"The amount of people who came up to me and told me they have Crohn's too has been just amazing," she said.

"Not a lot of people talk about it because it is quite embarrassing, but I don't care."
