STRICTLY star Shirley Ballas says she fancies swapping the glamorous world of ballroom for life as a pig farmer. The show’s head judge said she’d gladly ditch the dresses and sequins she wears on the BBC One dance contest in favour of a simpler existence.

Merseysider Shirley, 62, has been seduced by the delights of the countryside by her nature-loving son, Mark Ballas, and his wife, singer songwriter BC Jean.

She said: “One day I’d like to get the welly boots on and go on to a farm and clean up the animals - no makeup, welly boots and a big over-Mac. “People see me on Strictly all glammed up but really deep down inside I love all the activities that people would never expect I would love. “My daughter-in-law, she would like nothing more than a big farm and lots of animals.

She’s very much about nature, very much about the world and saving it.
