The 31-year-old, who won a gold and silver medal at the London games, would love to dress-up and get on stage for the competitive dancing programme.

When asked if she fancied appearing on the show, Victoria told Kate Thornton: "Well, I tell you what, if they do ring me I'd be very interested I have to say. The idea of being very glamorous, it definitely appeals to me.

"After wearing Lycra suits and tracksuits for so long and not a lot of make-up I think yeah that would be good fun."

Victoria has now retired from cycling and recently admitted she was excited to embrace her girly side.

She told The Sun: “I’m looking forward to feeling a bit more feminine.

“I haven’t worn a pair of heels in ages. I’ve stockpiled loads of lovely shoes and most of them have only been worn inside so far. Now I can dress like a girl again instead of wearing a men’s tracksuit every day.”

Victoria may have quit competitive cycling, but this doesn't mean she's just going to sit back and relax.

She said: "I'm retired from sport only I would just like to clarify, not entirely, I will have to get a proper job after this!

"The only other job I have had actually was pulling pints in my local pub in between university, sort of on holidays so I'm going to have to do a lot of work experience I think probably, watch this space - maybe we'll find out what I'll do quite soon."

Do you think Victoria would do well on Strictly Come Dancing?
Yes, she'll have a naturally good rhythm - athletes always do
I don't think she'll be elegant enough
