STRICTLY Come Dancing bosses are in competition with ITV ratings rival I’m A Celebrity to book the best name celebrities.
At the top of the BBC bookers list is pop queen Kylie Minogue, 51, tennis legend Boris Becker, 52, and One Direction star Louis Tomlinson’s social media sensation sister Lottie, 21.
It comes after bankrupt sports pundit Boris previously turned down I’m A Celebrity because bosses weren’t prepared to fork out £500,000.
In 2017 he was declared £54million in debt.
He blew his fortune on failed business ventures and a lavish lifestyle after three Wimbledon tennis titles in the 1980s.

A TV source said: “Money is no object and both shows have had low rent signings in the last year, this is their chance to flex their purse strings and snap up viewers.
“Big name celebs have been inundated with offers and while Strictly is seen as the slightly more high-brow show the jungle is less work time-wise and less likely to destroy your marriage.”
