Strictly Come Dancing 'approach Brooklyn Beckham and Royal family members' to appear on this year's show
Strictly Come Dancing 'approach Brooklyn Beckham and Royal family members' to appear on this year's showDavid and Victoria Beckham's son, Brooklyn, 20, is thought to be top of the hit BBC show's target list, while they are hoping to get a royal on board after the family have continuously hit the headlines over the past few months.
He continues: "I used to be able to sl** drop, but I can't anymore, I'm at that age. I like 'Oops Up Side Your Head' because you get to sit down!"
Alan then goes on to show off his moves with the audience, while Oti judges their talents. The professional dancer won the competition last year with former Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher.
Oti is also Dance Captain on BBC One's The Greatest Dancer, and speaking about her role, the star said: "I am the nice person. To critique someone on something they have worked so hard for is very difficult."
The 29-year-old dancer also admitted it was challenging to disappoint children competing on the show, affirming: "That is the hardest part. I'm always in bits."
Strictly might be many months away, but it's already being rumoured that Made in Chelsea's Jamie Laing will return after pulling out of the series last year when he sustained a foot injury.
Head Judge Shirley Ballas is believed to be returning to the judging panel alongside Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli.
The Graham Norton Show airs on BBC One.
