“Everyone on the inside thinks she could end up going a very long way.”

A rep for Strictly declined to comment when approached by ED!.

The claims come just a few months after Helen confirmed she had split from her husband Richie Myler.

In April, Helen announced on Instagram: “Very sad to say Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home.

“We will be doing our best to co-parent our small children.”

Helen and Richie are parents to sons Ernie, seven, and Louis, five, and daughter Elsie Kate, who was born in December 2021.

Last month, Helen opened up about being a mum to three kids during an interview with HELLO! magazine.

She said: “That whole thing about ‘it takes a village’, I believe that.

“You need to be with people who are in the same boat, otherwise, the mum guilt can be suffocating.

“Sometimes I am a full-time mum with the guilt of thinking I should be out working, and other times I am a working mum with the guilt that I’m not at home with them.”

If Helen does do Strictly this year, it means she’ll join the likes of Kym Marsh, Kaye Adams and Matt Goss.
