Although she liked the idea to be the first same-sex couple on the dancing show, the actress had declined the offer.

Actress Portia de Rossi has turned down the opportunity to become one half of the first same sex couple to compete on U.S. reality show "Dancing with the Stars".

The former "Ally McBeal" star, who is married to comedienne Ellen DeGeneres, recently admitted to radio personality Ryan Seacrest she would consider taking part in the competition, after learning TV producers were keen to have her dance opposite a professional female on the next season of the hit programme.

But De Rossi has since decided against the idea and rejected a formal offer from "Dancing With the Stars". Her representative tells Eonline.com, "Yes, she was asked but she declined."

Portia occupies herself with her new book "Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain" which was released last month.
