Dannii Minogue is considering appearing on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The Australian singer is a favourite amongst BBC One bosses to star in the upcoming series of the televised ballroom dancing competition in September, but Dannii is still debating whether to take part.

A TV insider told The Mirror newspaper: "The Strictly team would love to have Dannii as a contestant. She would be a huge attraction.

"There has been a series of talks with her and her team, and the ball was very much left in her court."

Dannii's ex-partner Kris Smith, with whom she has two-year-old Ethan, seemed to confirm the rumour at a recent event when he confessed: "They are very keen to get Dannii on board. She has been mulling it all over."

TV executives hope to win 40-year-old Dannii's allegiance for the BBC since she fell out with rival ITV1 talent show mogul Simon Cowell after he revealed they had a secret liaison in 2007.

It is thought that getting Danni - who was a judge on 'The X Factor' from 2007 to 2010 - would be the "ultimate coup" after she snubbed Simon's £1million offer to return to his show this year.
