Good Morning Britain stars Laura Tobin and Alex Beresford have responded to rumours that they could take part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

According to reports in The Sun, BBC bosses are keen to snap the pair up to show off their moves, with both of their names “in the mix.”

Now Laura and Alex have broken their silence and taken to social media to have their say – and it sounds like they’d both be up for the challenge.

Popular weather presenter Laura, 39, teased her Twitter followers by writing: “Bring it on.”

She continued to say that she’d be keen on seeing her co-star Alex showing off his moves on the BBC series, adding: @alexberesfordtv I’ve seen your dancing #Strictly.” The mum-of-one also cheekily added a wink face emoji.

And Alex was also quick to respond to the swirling rumours by joking about what moves he has in his back catalogue that could entertain viewers at home.

Taking to his Twitter account, 40 year old Alex, who previously starred on Dancing on Ice, wrote: “Do I need to brush up on my 2 step and shuffle?”

However Laura and Alex wouldn't be the first two Good Morning Britain stars to take part in the show.

Last year their co-host Ranvir Singh reached last year’s semi-final alongside professional partner Giovanni Pernice.

While over the years others, including Susanna Reid, Charlotte Hawkins and Kate Garraway, have also competed to lift the famous glitterball.

This comes after viewer favourite Ben Shephard joked that he’d only sign up to appear on the show if the fee was high enough to pay for his divorce settlement, alluding to the show’s infamous “curse”.

Last week, while Ben was presenting the show with Ranvir, she commented that Strictly had been chasing Ben to take part in the competition “for years.”

But the Tipping Point host dashed hopes he’d be appearing on the juggernaut series any time soon.

Ben, who has previously revealed his wife of 17 years Annie isn’t keen on him taking part, smiled: “We're having negotiations, we just need to get it up high enough so it's actually worth it.”

The 46 year old then laughed as he continued to joke: “Well, obviously they've got to cover the divorce settlement!”
