Christine McGuinness hints she will join reality TV show - fans speculate she may join Strictly Come Dancing
McGuiness spoke about joining both I’m A Celebrity and Strictly Come Dancing saying how she would fare on both shows - leading to speculation she may join one this year
Christine McGuinness has dropped a huge hint she is set to join a reality show this year during a discussion aboutI’m A Celebrity..Get Me Out Of Here, leading fans to speculate that she may be joining that or Strictly Come Dancing.
When asked about appearing on Strictly, Christine reportedly said: "I wouldn’t say no. I want to try to say yes to opportunities and I want to have fun. With Strictly, you’re learning a skill, but I’m very clumsy - I can’t promise I’d be good!"
She also spoke on ITV show I’m A Celebrity..Get Me Out Of Here telling Bella magazine: “I wonder if the jungle would be too much sensory stimulation for me. I want to do things that scare me, so I wouldn’t rule them out."
It’s been a tumultuous couple of years for Christine, who, back in November 2021 revealed she had been diagnosed with autism - just like her three children Penelope and Leo, nine, and six-year-old Felicity with ex Paddy McGuinness.
In her book, named Christine McGuinness: A Beautiful Nightmare, she said: "I have been confirmed as autistic. It’s strange, but I’ve noticed there are little hints throughout my life that I’m autistic and more like my children than I ever could have imagined.
"My issues with food, my social struggles, how hard I find it to make friends and stay focused, and my indecisiveness. The way I float through life reminds me of how my eldest daughter Penelope is. It all makes sense now. And as much as I’m not totally surprised, it’s still been emotional for me to accept, but it’s a relief as well.
"It was a lot to take in and once my appointment was over, I broke down in floods of tears. I think it’s because the news conjured up a mixture of emotions and while I’m not totally shocked and it’s a relief, I’m just really sad for my younger self."
