Strictly Come Dancing 'in talks with two A-list stars' for 2020 series
Strictly Come Dancing is reportedly in talks with two ‘massive A-list stars’ for its 2020 series.
It definitely looks set to come back in style.
Multitudes of celebs have graced the glitzy dancefloor over the years, but the show has always had its eye on a few big names.
And apparently some of them are seriously considering it this year.
An insider said: ‘Strictly bosses are actually in talks with some huge stars now the lockdown has come into effect.
‘There are two A-listers in particular that bosses have been trying to sign for years who are now considering joining the show.
‘The thing is – because of the lockdown, a lot of celebs are having films, TV shows, tours and theatre bookings cancelled and Strictly is likely to go ahead – it’s a big payday and a huge, prestigious show.
They added to The Sun: ‘When packed schedules might have stood in the way before, now a lot of stars’ calendars have opened right up.’

Doubts have been cast over this year’s series of the dancing show, although, since it isn’t set to air until the autumn, its fate isn’t sealed just yet.
Meanwhile, it was recently reported that the show may place its celebs and pro dancers in self-isolation together.
According to The Sun, sources revealed that the celebrities chosen to take part this year may be placed into self-isolation with their professional partners for rehearsals.
‘Strictly is so up in the air at the moment — but it is too important to the BBC for plans not to be put in place,’ they told the publication.
‘The stars would be put into isolation with their pro partners over a week before the start of the series to avoid any risks of illness.’
And the show’s head judge Shirley Ballas has already stated that producers are doing everything they possibly can to ensure the show airs this year.
