Happy Mondays’ Bez ‘in talks to join Strictly Come Dancing 2019’… after boasting he could WIN the show
Happy Mondays star Bez is reportedly in talks to join the 2019 Strictly Come Dancing line-up.
According to The Mirror, show bosses believe the maraca-toting musician – real name Mark Berry – will be a ‘ratings hit’ among this year’s line-up, which is also said to include Chris Evans and Vogue Williams.
Bez, 54, will no doubt be keen to show off his skills after previously boasting that he would win the show if he appeared on it.

‘I’ve lost count of the number of blokes who’ve come up over the years and said, ‘Thanks for making it OK for indie guys to get on the dance floor’.
MailOnline has contacted Bez’s representatives and a Strictly Come Dancing spokesperson for comment.

Bez is no stranger to reality TV himself, winning Celebrity Big Brother in 2005 and appearing on the celebrity special of Bargain Hunt last year.
He was famously disqualified from the latter, however, after it emerged his girlfriend had bought all his lots.
Meanwhile, Bez’s bandmate Shaun Ryder previously revealed he’d turned down the BBC One show due to his swearing habit, opting instead to appear on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! as the ITV reality show is past the watershed.
Whilst the Strictly line-up is usually shrouded in secrecy, last year Chris Evans confirmed that he would be appearing on the dancing show.
Alan Carr and Huw Edwards have also been approached by the BBC, and whilst the comedian confessed that he doesn’t think he has the time this year, newsreader Huw is said to be seriously considering the offer.
Reality star Vogue Williams is also rumoured to be in the running for the show.
Last year’s series was won by documentary filmmaker Stacey Dooley and her dance partner Kevin Clifton.
Reaching the final was vlogger Joe Sugg, singer Faye Tozer and dancer Ashley Roberts.
