Bollywood beauty Shilpa Shetty, who enthralled the British audience with her debut musical here a couple of days back, says she would love to be part of BBC's reality show Strictly Come Dancing. "If any offer comes from the BBC's reality show, I will definitely like to consider it," Shetty, the star of Miss Bollywood - a musical, said.

The actress said she was a judge on a show based on Strictly Come Dancing in India.

Strictly Come Dancing

It is a British television show, featuring celebrities with professional dance partners competing in Ballroom and Latin dances.

The title of the show has allusions to the film Strictly Ballroom.

The show has run on BBC One since 2004.

The show pairs a number of celebrities with professional ballroom dancers who each week compete against each other in a competition to impress a panel of judges and the viewing public in order to survive potential elimination.

Through a telephone poll, viewers vote who should stay and who should go, the results of the poll being combined with the ranking of the panel of judges.

"So that's something I would consider," she said. Shetty, winner of the Celebrity Big Brother show in January this year after being a victim of racial abuse, said she would never do a Big Brother-type project again.

"I couldn't do with having cameras on me all the time," she said yesterday.

After emerging victorious in the show, she became a household name in the UK, got a doctorate, met the then Prime Minister Tony Blair, launched her own perfume and played the star role in the musical Miss Bollywood which proved to be a great success.
