Strictly Come Dancing Close To Signing Richard Gere
This seems to be a battle which will grow and grow until eventually, it is big enough to consume the sun itself.
Today we learned that Strictly Come Dancing bosses are lining up Hollywood A-Lister Richard Gere for a one-off guest appearance.
Apparently his performance in the film Shall We Dance is enough of a pretext to get him on the ballroom show and rumours are circulating that he will be dancing with Katya Virshilas (who also appeared in the 2004 movie).
A source told The Sun: “ITV is hammering the show in the ratings, so bosses think getting some high-profile names on will do the trick. Mariah Carey and Pamela Anderson are also being lined up.”
