If you saw Piranha 3D, you probably remember gorgeous Kelly, 34. If not, maybe you've seen some of her modeling photos. Or you may know her from the famous guys she’s dated — including actors Jason Statham and Billy Zane. Or maybe you remember when she was hanging out with DWTS pro Derek Hough and Season 14's Katherine Jenkins, back in London in 2012.
According to the Mirror, Derek put in a good word for Kelly and now DWTS producers are considering casting her for the U.S. show. She would definitely have a leg up on the competition since she already competed on Strictly Come Dancing — the U.K. version of DWTS — back in 2007. She left the show after her father passed away, but she went on to dance in the 2008 Christmas special. So she'd be in the "previous dance experience" column for sure. (Don't give her to Derek! He doesn't need another celeb with experience!)
A source told the Mirror why DWTS might cast Kelly. “They love British stars on the show, and Kelly is exactly what it needs – she’s down-to-earth, she’s going to look amazing in all those ballroom outfits and she’s not afraid of putting in the work.”
We’ll have to wait and see if this is a legit early casting rumor or just one of the many whispers that advance a new season. The spring 2014 season should start airing in March, which means an official cast list should show up in February. Until then, what do you think of this particular rumor?
