She was dealt a devastating blow earlier this year when it was confirmed her TV show The Greatest Dancer had been axed after just two series – but Cheryl Tweedy might not be off our screens for long, as she could be joining the Strictly Come Dancing judging panel!

As speculation mounted that veteran judge Bruno Tonioli might not appear on this year’s show, a source told new Cheryl, 37, is being encouraged to join Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Shirley Ballas on the panel by her BFF – former Strictly contestant Kimberley Walsh.

“Kimberley’s urged Cheryl to go for the opportunity and says it will help revive her career, as well as boost her self-esteem and prove wrong all the critics who’ve torn her apart over the past year,” claimed our insider.

“Cheryl was hesitant when she was first approached and said she didn’t want to be thrust back into the spotlight and appear desperate by jumping from one talent show to the next. But Kimberley urged her to consider how being on one of the most popular TV shows could turn her back into the country’s golden girl, like The X Factor did.”
