Bosses are said to want to sign Jennifer, 36, after years of her being known as one of soap’s “most loved and sexiest stars”, The Sunday Mirror reports.
Metcalfe has played the well-known character Mercedes McQueen since 2006, and previously took part in Dancing On Ice back in 2011.
A source said: “Soap stars always do well on Strictly and Jen is one of the most loved and sexiest out there right now.
“She’s been at the centre of some of Hollyoaks’ biggest ever story lines over the years. Only last year, her character was shot as she spun around a dance floor.”
Also, a source revealed to Daily Star On Sunday that bosses have also approached Sarah, 38, who has played Mandy Richardson on the programme since 1996.
The sourced explained: “Sarah has been approached by Strictly bookers. They have had her on their wish list for a while, so they’re really hoping she signs up.
“There isn’t long before the line-up needs to be confirmed, so Sarah will need to decide soon if she’s going to go for it.
“Sarah would make the perfect contestant. The Hollyoaks cast would all be behind her 100%.’
Hollyoaks stars have seen incredible success on Strictly, with fellow cast members Ricky Whittle, Danny Mac, and Chelsee Healey all showing amazing dancing talent and reaching the final.
Daily Star Online has contacted representatives for Jennifer Metcalfe, Sarah Jayne Dunn and Strictly Come Dancing for comment.
