This is a random one 😅

Shakin' Stevens could be doing Strictly this year!

According to show bosses at the BBC, they've been trying to secure the man for Strictly Come Dancing for years.

The 75-year-old (whose real name is Mike Barratt) is still performing.

Although he's released 20 studio albums since the 1970s, it's probably safe to say he's best known for his hit song 'Merry Christmas Everyone'.

"Shakey is considered a national treasure thanks to that big Christmas hit and is certain to be popular with viewers" an insider told The Daily Star.

“Bosses are hoping he can be the older contestant who surprises everyone. His hip shaking on the Top of the Pops is legendary!” they added.

We're sure he's still got it!

Right now no one has been confirmed for the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC which we be returning for its 17th series in September.
