probably doesn't need to dust off his
dancing shoes just yet, but even in mid-summer, the rumours about this year's Strictly Come Dancing
lineup are finally in.Noel Gallagher has apparently turned down
a call. Sian Williams
is reportedly in talks. Charlie 'Evil Janine' Brooks
has apparently signed on the dotted line. And everyone from dancing dog Britain's Got Talent
champ Ashleigh Butler to Ashes legend Michael Vaughan to daytime favourite Fern Britton are apparently working on their fleckerls and rumbas in case they get the call.Reality Bites
has had a go at picking out its own Strictly
dream team, which could send the ratings flying so high they'd give Simon Cowell nightmares.Liam Gallagher
Brother Noel may have said, 'no thanks', but what about his younger, more brash and gobbier sibling. We admit that it's a (massive) long shot, but with his passion for fashion, love for getting one-up on Noel and post-Oasis career hardly setting the charts on fire, maybe he could 'Roll With It' on the dancefloor and flex his rock 'n' roll muscles down BBC Television Centre. Nice to see you our kid, to see you nice! Sir Tom Jones
You Can Leave Your Hat On. What's Up Pussycat. Delilah. Kiss. Sexbomb. These are just some of the songs that the hip-swinging, pop crooning, silver fox Sir Tom Jones could waltz, cha cha cha and foxtrot to if he stepped out on the Strictly
dancefloor. If his body can hold up to the challenge and if his dance partner can refrain from throwing her knickers at him, he would be a brilliant addition.

The two old stagers have been linked to Strictly
year after year, but for various reasons - pay, commitments, fear of national ridicule - both have declined offers so far. Fingers crossed this is the year that Mades busts out his wonky-leg dance moves and Shazza returns to British Saturday night TV to haunt her old buddy Mr Cowell.Pippa Middleton
That bum. In a Strictly
dress. Doing the salsa. What more reason do you need?

At the Spice Girls reunion it looked like poor old Posh had plenty on her plate. Probably bored of playing second fiddle to her dashing/talented/national hero other half, it's time Vic B put some zigga-zig-ah back into her life and cut loose. A few cheeky Latin routines on Strictly
could show the nation that she isn't the grumble guts that so many label her.Stephen Fry
A nice set of tails. A euphoric big band number from Dave Arch's band. Erin Boag holding out her arm in a flowing ballroom dress. Suits you Stephen Fry. Suits you Sir.

He may be a bit busy right now taking over the world with Sherlock
, Star Trek
and The Hobbit
, but we're sure he could put those projects on hold for a quick-step with Brucie and the gang. Benedict's Cumberb*tch fanclub would no doubt send voting lines into meltdown as soon as he finished sliding his way around the floor.Who would be in your fantasy Strictly lineup?
