Gardeners' World presenter Rachel de Thame has said she would like to compete on Strictly Come Dancing.

She told Radio Times: "I hate things like I'm a Celebrity... Get Me out of Here!, which bring out the worst in people - that bear-baiting. The exception is Strictly, which I adore."

Asked if she would like to compete in the series, de Thame replied: "I have been asked, but I was about to have a baby so it was very bad timing.

"But it is something that I might find very tempting, having been a dancer in another life - as a teenager I attended the Royal Ballet School."

The 11th series of Strictly Come Dancing begins on BBC One in the autumn.
