Strictly Come Dancing star Shirley Ballas’ life story could be turned into a TV drama – and she has an idea of which Hollywood icon she wants to play.
Shirley says she has received offers to turn her 2020 memoir, Behind the Sequins, into a screen adaptation. According to the MirrorShirley, 63, would favor an American acting legend in the role.
She said: “We’re interested in a six-part series. I’m not sure who would play me. Angelina Jolie would be good.”
Strictly judge Anton du Beke could also be in line to be part of the potential drama. Shirley added: “I’d love Anton to be a part of it… I’m always open to offers.”
Shirley chose to follow her memoirs with a novel, allowing her to include her most shocking stories in Murder on the Dancefloor, on which the main character, Lily Richmond, is based.
Speaking to Good Housekeeping Live, she said: “There were a lot of stories in the autobiography that I couldn’t write, or they didn’t want to include me, or they didn’t want me to write.”
Strictly Come Dancing will be taking on Blackpool next Saturday for its 9th week. The contestants will take to the stage at the iconic Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
However, fans were left reeling this week after Angela Rippon survived the shocking dance-off with Krishnan Guru-Murthy. Although three of the judges chose to save the Angel, chief judge Shirley took a different approach.
She said: “I chose the person who I felt was more basic on his feet without any technical errors, and I want to save Krishnan and Lauren.”
