Isabel Webster eyes up role on Strictly like co-star Eamonn Holmes' wife Ruth Langsford

TV star Isabel Webster wants to become the latest Breakfast news presenter to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

Isabel, who presents alongside Eamonn Holmes on GB News, says she’d love to follow in the footsteps of her co-host’s wife, Ruth Langsford, with a stint on the BBC show.


The 39-year-old was seen chatting to Strictly head judge Shirley Ballas at the Intertalent BAFTA Breakfast event earlier this week.

Speaking after the event Isabel said: “Shirley told me to go for it and I’d absolutely love to do Strictly one day.

“Getting up at 3am each morning to present a Breakfast TV show isn’t the most glamorous of routines.

"So it would be a nice change to have the chance to get involved in a bit more glitz and glamour on a Saturday night.

"And I’m sure Ruth would give me a few tips on how to deal with Craig.”

Isabel would become the latest in a long line of Breakfast TV stars to tread the boards on Strictly.

Last year the BBC’s Dan Walker took part. His appearance followed in the footsteps of BBC stars Naga Munchetty and Mike Bushell. 

Good Morning Britain’s Susannah Reid, Charlotte Hawkins and Kate Garraway have also appeared. 

It comes amid reports BBC bosses are planning to shake up the show by offering Anton Du Beke a permanent role as show judge. 

Reports earlier this month said popular judge Bruno Tonioli won’t return later this year and he’s believed to be attracting interest from ITV. 

A source said: “Bruno is good friends with Simon Cowell and remains very popular with viewers. ITV would be interested in speaking to him if his role on Strictly is coming to an end.”
