Since Alesha Dixon defected to Britain's Got Talent earlier this month, Phillips has been tipped to rejoin the ballroom dancing show as a judge for this year's series.
However, she told the Daily Mail: "I've tried to put everything from Strictly aside and move on with my life. I'm content with doing what I'm doing. I don't need it anymore.
"But one thing I will say is that I think people like me as a judge because I can be sharp, but I can also be loving. Above all, I'm fair and knowledgeable."
Asked whether she would accept an offer from the BBC, Phillips said: "I haven't thought about it. When I walked away from Strictly, I decided to start living on what is here and what is now."
She added of her ambitions to stay on TV: "I haven't even thought about slowing down. I want to be dancing on TV when I'm Bruce Forsyth's age. I feel so completely accepted that my age doesn't stand before me."
Tabloid reports today claim that Phillips is in talks with the BBC over a future role on the show.
Former Strictly pro Karen Hardy is favourite to take Dixon's seat.
