Former England and Liverpool striker Peter Crouch is  being courted for this year’s edition of Strictly Come Dancing.

The 40-year-old capped 42 times for the Three Lions  ended his playing career two years ago and has since been working as a pundit and podcast host for the BBC.

Over the last month, Crouch has also hosted a Euro 2020 discussion show, Crouchy’s Year-Late Euros: Live, and is in the process of filming a new documentary series focussing on non-league side Dulwich Hamlet.

According to The Sun, Crouch, who stands at 6’7″, could also have another project on the table later this year if he accepts a “big-money offer” to appear on Strictly.

“Peter is hugely popular and would be a phenomenal signing,” a source told the newspaper.

“The casting team were especially keen because he had such a high profile during the Euros.

“Taller men have struggled but he would stand out a mile on the dancefloor.”

Crouch’s wife Abbey Clancy previously appeared on the show and won in 2013.

Strictly Come Dancing (informally known as Strictly) is a British television dance contest in which celebrities partner with professional dancers to compete in mainly ballroom and Latin dance. Each couple is scored by a panel of judges.

The title of the show is a continuation of the long-running series Come Dancing, with an allusion to the film Strictly Ballroom. The format has been exported to 60 other countries—under the title Dancing with the Stars.
