The former Welsh professional footballer is thought to be keen to take part in the dance competition, because he thinks he can be the first football playing star to win.

A source close to the Savage told The News Of The World:

”He wants to be the first footballer to win Strictly and nothing is going to stop him.”

A BBC insider added:

“Robbie is exactly what we want for Strictly – someone who will make waves.

“Every football fan in the country is going to want to see how ridiculous he looks wearing tight lycra and sequined outfits.”

Savage is a co-host of BBC Radio 5 Live’s 606 show. In May 2011 he was awarded the Sony Radio Academy Rising Star Award.
