The Mirror has reported that bosses are keen on signing up the 36-year-old and she could be the perfect fit for the BBC prime time show.
A source said: “Soap stars always do well on Strictly and Jen is one of the most loved and sexiest out there right now.
“Everyone working on the show is very excited at the prospect of her signing.
They continued: “She’s been at the centre of some of Hollyoaks’ biggest ever storylines over the years.”

“Only last year, her character was shot as she spun around a dance floor.
“People are joking that it was like her Strictly audition when she filmed those scenes.”
Should she end up strutting her stuff on the dancefloor in September, she will try to keep the high standard of Hollyoaks stars doing well on the show.
Former stars Ricky Whittle, 38, who played cop Calvin Valentine and Danny Mac, 32, who was Mark “Dodger” Savage made it to the final, as well as current Hollyoaks actor Chelsee Healey, 31, who plays Goldie McQueen.
