The former 'EastEnders' star has admitted he'd love nothing more than to land a presenting gig on the ballroom and latin show alongside Tess Daly or Claudia Winkleman because he doesn't think it's the type of series he could front alone.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Shane said: "No, I'd love to host Strictly. If one of the girls decide they've had enough, then I'd happily host a show like that. I couldn't host on my own. I've got so many friends in there, I don't know who to vote for."

And that's not the only show the 53-year-old actor would like to host as he'd love to reboot 'Don't Forget The Lyrics', in which contestants had to try and fill in the blanks of song lyrics in order to win the cash prize, but this time he'd like it to have a prime time slot on ITV.

He said: "That was one of my favourite shows that I've ever worked on and we did two series on Sky and if I was going to come back and do a Saturday night show, that would be the one I'd go back to. I think different bosses come in and they want to change things but I still think there's time for another series of 'Don't Forget the Lyrics'.

"I think it's one of those shows that would work well on ITV on a Saturday night. Get me with my live band and put me back on 'Don't Forget the Lyrics'. "
