Rumours over who will appear in this years Strictly Come Dancing are rife as the series premiere nears closer. The line-up is usually jam-packed with a host of famous faces from a variety of fields but could this year’s batch of celebrities include The One Show’s Angellica Bell?

Angellica often joins Alex Jones on The One Show or steps in when the regular presenter takes a break. 

Strictly has seen a number of The One Show alumni over the years and it looks like Angellica could be next to swap the sofa for the dance floor. 

Fans of the TV presenter will know she’s a fan of the show and bookmakers fancy her chances of making it on to the line-up.

Ladbrokes have slashed Angellica’s odds to just 3/1 on her taking to the floor.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Angellica fancies herself as quite the dancer and may well be the latest member of The One Show team to find herself on Strictly.”

If Angellica does join this year’s Strictly line-up, she’ll have some big dancing shoes to fill. 

The One Show stalwart Alex just missed out on a place in the final when she was partnered with James Jordan in 2011.

Alex’s co-host for nine years, Matt Baker became a Strictly runner-up in series eight with Aliona Vilani.

While The One Show favourite Gethin Jones and Strictly professional Camilla Dallerup were runners-up in series five.

Elsewhere, Strictly bosses are considering “axing” live music over coronavirus fears. 

BBC audiences are often treated to huge musical acts with big names such as Taylor Swift and Andrea Bocelli.

A telly insider said: “It’s seemingly impossible at this stage to recreate safely what has been a norm in previous years.

“Although live music from acts is still being considered, it’s unlikely to include any big international stars and could be filmed away from the studio because of safety concerns.

“In early meetings about the show when the lockdown was nationwide, the idea of having live musicians performing was totally thrown out.

“Given the current restrictions, it’s a planning nightmare.”

Fans of the infamous Dave Arch will be pleased to know it’s likely he’ll be returning to the show. 

“Dave Arch and his band will be returning to the show but their roles will be modified to ensure they can perform safely.

“Rehearsals will start next month for them but it’s still not known what shape their input will take.”

“Everyone is hoping they will be able to play live in the studio. But as with everything, it’s totally up in the air,” the source told The Sun.

Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One later this year.
