Su Pollard has expressed hope that her forthcoming Strictly Come Dancing appearance will help her land a soap role.

The Hi-de-Hi comedienne will compete against the likes of EastEnders star Charlie Brooks and actress Debra Stephenson in a special Christmas contest today (December 25).

The 62-year-old has revealed that she wants to relaunch an acting career following her Strictly showing, suggesting that she would inject some comedy into the world of soap.

"I'd love to be in Corrie or Emmerdale," she told The Sun. "I think there is more room for funny characters."

Pollard also shared her dream of becoming the first female Doctor Who, jesting: "I wouldn't need the costume - I already dress wackily."

She last year proposed a duet with Lady GaGa, claiming that the pair are "like peas in a pod".

The Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special airs today (Christmas Day) at 8pm on BBC One.
