Shirley Ballas fights tears as she addresses ‘terrifying’ challenge

Zara Tindall might end up showing off her moves on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Speaking exclusively to, Strictly judge Shirley Ballas hinted a possible appearance from the royal.

When asked who her dream contestant on the BBC favourite would be, the 62-year-old replied: “I would love somebody from the Royal Family.”

Teasing further, she added: “But they haven’t all been announced yet… We’ve got more so let’s see.”

When asked if there was any royal in particular she’d love to see on the dancefloor, she immediately responded: “Zara Tindall.”

Could the daughter of Princess Anne really be gearing up to step onto the Strictly floor?

Her former rugby star husband won even more fans last year when he showed a different side to him on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

It’s possible she could be following in his footsteps and take on a different reality show.

Shirley’s hopeful prediction came as she discussed the upcoming series as well as a very personal challenge she’s undertaking.

In memory of her brother David, who she lost to suicide in 2003, Shirley is dedicating this week to three terrifying challenges to raise money for mental health charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).

The dancer is an ambassador for CALM, and on Wednesday took on the world’s fastest zipline before gearing up for a 700-foot wing walk and ending the week with a terrifying skydive.

Shirley, who is afraid of heights, explained how she was taking on the three challenges for anyone suffering and everyone who has lost someone to suicide.

As well as her brother, Shirley more recently lost a close friend in the same way.

The ballroom legend is also calling on people to stand with her and support CALM’s life-saving services.

The charity receives a call for help every 59 seconds, and Shirley hopes to raise awareness and give back.

Many across the country are already getting behind Shirley by donating and sharing their stories of loss and grief on Shirley’s Just Giving page, which can be found at

Strictly Come Dancing is set to return to BBC One in September.
