London: Michael Vaughan, the former England cricket captain, is expected to be confirmed as a celebrity contestant in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.
Vaughan was coy about his involvement in the BBC's top-rated light-entertainment show, tweeting: "BTW I can't dance... although at 3am after a shed full I produce some proper shapes."
Vaughan, if confirmed, will attempt to become the third cricketer to win the show, following the former England internationals Darren Gough and Mark Ramprakash, who both proved adept at ballroom dancing in front of a peak-time TV audience.
Vaughan, whose cricket career ended in retirement three years ago, has since been involved in a wide range of activities including the media, a player agency and various commercial tie-ups.
