Natalie Cassidy played Sonia Fowler in EastEnders

Natalie Cassidy is apparently being lined-up to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

The actress, 26, released a best-selling fitness DVD after quitting EastEnders in February 2007.

She dropped four dress sizes for Natalie Cassidy: Then And Now Workout, but has since regained weight. 

‘She's a big star and people really warm to her,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘Appearing on Strictly is a dream come true for her.’

Sharon Osbourne and Coronation Street's Reece Dinsdale are also said to be in talks with show bosses.
