Bruno Tonioli has revealed he would love to see David Beckham on Strictly Come Dancing.

At the top of the flamboyant Italian judge’s wishlist of celebrities he would like to appear on the BBC One dance show is the former England footballer.

“Everyone’s got their wishlist, and at the top of everybody’s list is David Beckham – I’ll have him,” he said.

Bruno, who will return to his seat alongside Len Goodman, Alesha Dixon and Craig Revel Horwood in the forthcoming series, reckons Becks would do well in the competition.

“He moves well across the football field, he kicks a ball pretty well, he’s got a great frame and he looks good in a suit so it’ll be interesting to see how he does.”

He wouldn’t say no to David’s fashion designer wife Victoria either.

“Victoria’s a lovely girl, to be honest, and she’s funny. She’s cute, but I’d rather have David,” he quipped.

Strictly Come Dancing premieres on BBC One on October 1.
