Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes looks set for a stint on Strictly Come Dancing or I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here, according to our traders.
BBC and ITV chiefs are reportedly battling to get the soap star on board, and we currently make Strictly Come Dancing her most likely destination. Brookes is 2/1 to swap the cobbles for the ballroom.
Brookes, who plays Kate Connor in Weatherfield is also 3/1 to join a new-look I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! later this year. The show has been a popular path for other Corrie stars like Jennie McAlpine, Andrew Whyment and Craig Charles in the past.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “I’m A Celeb’s loss could be Strictly’s gain with chiefs from both shows seemingly desperate to land Faye Brookes.”
