However, saying that, she would love the chance to take part in Strictly too – providing she makes it further in the programme than he does!

During an appearance on Radio 1Extra yesterday, Jessica said: "I definitely would consider going on the show, I love it.

"But if I did it, it would be a competition and I'd have to get further than Mark!"

Mark is going from strength to strength on Strictly Come Dancing - and some fans have even tipped him to win!

Speaking about her brother's success, Jessica continued: "I can't believe how well he is doing.

"He's never danced before and he had two left feet, but where it's a competition he can't fail. I'm so proud of him.

"I always get a bit teary watching him - I'm like a proud mother! I danced growing up and he played football – so it's like me playing football all day!"

Meanwhile, Jessica spoke about her own career on Radio 1Xtra, revealing that she is hoping to release new music next year.

The singer said: "I did three singles and we're just in talks again about doing something else.

"I'm just listening to tracks at the moment and co-writing to try and get something good."
