Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Ferguson want to be on Dancing with the Stars 4

It’s now time for celebrities to float their names as possible participants in Dancing with the Stars 4.

Britain’s Daily Express quoted an anonymous source who said Aniston is “seriously considering doing the show and thinks it would be a laugh.” She’s apparently a fan of the ABC reality series, and if the news is true and she does appear, she’d easily be the most famous person to ever be on the show.

Her alleged interest follows another celebrity saying she, too, wants to participate. Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson said recently, “I’d quite like to go on ‘Dancing With The Stars. I’d like them to teach me the tango. … I did go to the oldest tango place and I did look at it and think, ‘I can try this.'”

This past season, stars such as Harry Hamlin lobbied to get themselves on the show.
