19 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Vernon Kay has revealed that he would "seriously consider" taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.

The presenter told Loose Women that he already feels like part of the family as he's on set so often with wife Tess Daly, who co-hosts the Saturday night show with Claudia Winkleman.

He said: "If they asked me, I would seriously consider it."

He added that he has "never, ever had one conversation" about joining the show, explaining: "I think it's because I'm there on a regular basis. They must feel like I'm part of the family.

"It's been 11, 12 years that they've been doing it and I'm always down there causing a nuisance. It's such a good show."

Kay also revealed that he likes to recreate Strictly at home with his daughters Phoebe and Amber when Daly is out at work.

"It's quite nice that we know when Strictly Come Dancing is [scheduled]," he said. »
