EastEnders star Charlie Brooks has reportedly asked for time off from the soap to appear on Strictly Come Dancing.
The actress took part in the Christmas special late last year and enjoyed it so much that she wants to do the next series.
It is thought she will leave Walford in August to take part in the ballroom dance competition.
A source told The Sun: "It's more or less a done deal. Charlie would be a dream signing for Strictly.
"She's high-profile and popular and judging by the Christmas special, she has natural ability."
Charlie's character, Janine Malloy, is currently pregnant with bad boy Michael Moon's baby and it is thought she will be leaving the soap after the baby is born.
A spokesperson for EastEnders said: "Charlie will be taking a break from EastEnders later this year.
"Over the coming months there will be a lot of unexpected twists and turns and the story is bound to be explosive."
Brooks was teamed up with Vincent Simone for the Christmas special.
The pair won the competition dancing to Santa Klaus is Coming to Town.
