Martin Roberts is set to compete in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Homes Under The Hammer' host, 60, has reportedly been approached by show bosses about taking to the dancefloor in the upcoming series.

A source told The Daily Star newspaper: "Martin is just waiting to sign his contract. It'll be a dream come true for him - and a delight for viewers."

And, Martin hinted at the news at the recent TRIC awards.

He told the newspaper: "I'm like a Ninja Mutant Hero Turtle - I just eat pizzas. Domino's Mighty Meat. I'm the stomach of Domino's, not the face of it.

"I should worry about what I eat because I had a health scare. I need to look after myself better.

"And certainly if I get this TV show later in the year. I'll have to get super fit."

Meanwhile, two CBBC stars are also in talks for 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

Blue Peter presenter Shini Muthukrishnan, 22, is set to face off against CBBC presenter Evie Pickerill, 32, in a bid to land a coveted spot in the BBC dance competition and Shini is said to be the frontrunner.

A source told The Mail On Sunday newspaper: "There can really only be one from the world of CBBC so there is now a full-on battle, a war.

"A place on 'Strictly' for those on children's TV is seen as the golden goose. It's a way of getting them out of that genre of TV and turning themselves into household names.

"Many of their agents have approached 'Strictly's casting boss but have been usurped by Shini."
